We believe that building a collaborative and resilient community to both heal trauma and solve poverty in our classrooms and neighborhoods has the ability to change lives. We believe that working together can make a difference. And we believe these are issues that we can no longer ignore.

So let’s start with this essential question:

What is the one thing that has to happen or nothing else matters?

Join us and hundreds of others on April 23-24, 2019 to share strategies and resources during the two day Bridging to Resilience conference as we work together to answer that question. You’ll learn with and from classroom teachers, administrators, students and parents, non-profit organizations, and caregivers from across the state and the country as we address the solutions of both poverty and trauma.
