There are quite a few agencies and organizations focusing on ACEs prevention, trauma and resiliency in the PNW region.
q Trauma Informed Oregon (https://traumainformedoregon.org/
) is a good one to begin finding connections.
q In the Columbia River Gorge, on the Washington side the Skamania Klickitat Community Network offers trainings, resources and materials for families, providers and community groups (skcnparents.net.)
q In Hood River and Wasco County the Create Resiliency Network (http://createresiliency.org/
) is working with the Sanctuary Model. Claire Ranit, Project Director, MARC Grant, Columbia Gorge Health Council is the contact.
q Oregon Start also has a number of partners and other links listed: http://oregonstart.org/modules...rauma-informed-care/
q Clark County, WA, just across the river from Portland has the ACEs Action Alliance group. (http://acesactionalliance.org/
q Resilience Trumps Aces is in Walla-Walla, WA. https://resiliencetrumpsaces.org/
