Team for WV Children $5,400 (Health) Funds will support the creation of a website and digital home for the newly-formed statewide Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Coalition. The ACES Coalition strives to mobilize child-abuse prevention work and foster collaboration amongst WV providers. The Coalition’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all West Virginians by reducing the impact of adverse childhood experiences.
“The foundation’s support will help us develop a website and digital home for the Coalition where we will provide online tools, training and resources to inform various audiences about Adverse Childhood Experiences.”
