The primary goal of Surviving to Thriving is to create collaborative conversations regarding the impact of early childhood adversity and trauma on one’s cognitive, emotional and physical development as well as on interpersonal relationships and life choices throughout one’s life span. Through community collaborative learning sessions, we can develop greater awareness of needs that exist for healthy youth, adult, family and community development where all can thrive. Surviving to Thriving is a bridge designed to connect educators, community organizations, families and professionals across generations and the healthcare spectrum.
