We envision a region where every community has the strengths, social connections and community experiences needed for every individual to thrive.
WHAT IS TRACES?
Trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are a root cause of major social issues.
TRACEs is a region-wide partnership supporting communities to recognize the effects of trauma and to nurture resilience—the antidote to trauma.
Through this partnership, more than 100 nonprofits, organizations and individuals in Jefferson, Crook and Deschutes counties and on the lands of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs have developed a shared agenda to nurture resilience, reduce the impacts of trauma on our community and make the systemic change that will dramatically improve the ability of every one of us to thrive.
