Programs Addressing ACEs and Trauma in Illinois

As recognition of the widespread impact of trauma increases, the desire to provide trauma-informed care is at the forefront of a movement to build resilience and prevent and mitigate the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Given the growing momentum for change and the need to bolster awareness of promising practices in trauma-informed care, the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative researched over 300 programs to develop this Environmental Scan Report. The goal of the Scan was to uncover essential characteristics, promising practices, and obstacles for meaningful systems change towards trauma-informed care. Recommendations gleaned from our findings on how to integrate the science of ACEs and resiliency into program and organizational change efforts are also provided.
