The Family Tree, a Baltimore-based child abuse and neglect prevention organization, in partnership with the Maryland Essentials for Childhood, launched the statewide ACE Interface Project Nov. 15 at Renaissance Fine Arts in Baltimore to combat the growing incidence rate of adverse childhood experiences.
Designed in partnership with childhood behavior expert Dr. Robert Anda, The project is focused on building resilience in the developing brains of susceptible youth and building self-healing communities.
The project’s goal is to share the findings of the study effectively and to promote change within society.
Maryland Essentials for Childhood is a statewide collective impact initiative that includes public and private partners to prevent child maltreatment and other adverse childhood experiences. It promotes relationships and environments that help children grow up to be healthy and productive citizens so that they, in turn, can build stronger and safer families and communities for their children.
The Family Tree is Maryland’s leading child abuse and neglect prevention organization, providing the education and support parents need to raise healthy, productive children. More than 21,000 individuals receive help each year through their research.
