We strengthened communities by:
Advancing an understanding of the intersection and interactive nature of community violence/trauma and early childhood development, and the relationship between community conditions and outcomes for individuals and families.
Creating a community of practice that acts on the intersection of positive early childhood development, healthy families, and community safety, with a focus on the local level.
Identifying system, community, and policy change strategies that address the community determinants of health to improve outcomes for children, families, and their communities.
Understanding the landscape of the intersection of community violence/trauma prevention and early childhood development to inform future work and to advance an equitable Culture of Health.
