The Central Oregon TRACEs (Trauma, Resilience and Adverse Childhood Experiences) partnership invites individuals, organizations and communities to partner in a shared commitment to make our region a place where every individual has the strength, social connections, and community support they need to be resilient and thrive in the face of adversity. Toxic stress and trauma have similar impacts; all of which show up in each of our Central Oregon communities. Together, we will learn:
- How toxic stress, adverse experiences and trauma impact those in our community;
- Why this matters to education, health, and the economy; and
- How each of us can make it easier for people to thrive in the face of adversity.
We envision a region where every individual has the strengths, social supports and community resources they need to thrive.
We envision a region where leaders, organizations, and communities actively create systems that help build resiliency. A region where strengths are nurtured resulting in high levels of health and well-being and low levels of chronic health conditions; where all children achieve their highest level of education success and graduate on time; and where all adults are financially stable and contributing participants in their community.
Inclusive and inviting to partners from all sectors: All sectors are engaged; any partner aligned with priority indicators and committed to collective impact is welcome.
Commitment to equity: Partners share a deep commitment to equity, reflected in the outcomes of the work as well as the process of collaboration.
Shared measurement: Partners agree on the ways success will be measured and reported based on a short list of common indicators.
Mutually reinforcing activities: Diverse, cross-sector stakeholders coordinate their activities through a mutually reinforcing plan of action.
Continuous communication: Frequent and open communication builds trust, assures mutual objectives and creates common motivation.
Commitment to solutions: Partners have an unwavering optimism and commitment to finding solutions to challenges that arise.
