Unfortunately, I do not have the college degrees to qualify to apply for this position, because our state especially the south eastern region desperately needs a Resilient communities officer!. I am a victim/survivor who lost a child to her father/abuser through our family court system and cps. This reply is not to bash the judicial system and evaluators and such but to educate and share that I spent three years researching cross-system collaboration, searching for providers that the internet or local domestic Violence services suggested I contact and always hit a dead end. Aside from the fact my child didn't receive proper evaluations and therapies during custody battles when I had in home therapists and past police reports and documentation with cps that she was a victim of abuse suffering symptoms of mental illness and trauma with ptsd, when my negative aces and anxiety disorder heightened I was then targeted as a danger to her so the abuse was ignored, it triggered my ptsd from having been his victim and watching my child be victimized by him and the system, I turned to amphetamines to cope because the multi agency or community collaboration DID NOT FOLLOW BEST PRACTICES or any of their own procedures and policies. Actually suggested when I requested help, all men's groups or places that don't take uninsured clients. I've since found other mother's such as myself but still can't find support groups, a psychologist office that returns calls, a physician that will see me, and I fit the criteria in multiple aspects of the Resilient Communities project. Along with my other children from a prior marriage this has affected. We essentially touch on most all cause, effect and outcome the ACES study and report summarize. I hope when I read through future posts here I see more replies especially posts requesting partnerships and people to help these kids. I mention Aces and advocacy and community collaboration and awareness and am shocked at his few people have any idea what I'm talking about. Sad
