Whole Child, Inc. is an organization committed to providing stress education and wellness programs that support children physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and intellectually, and help the adults in their lives create a stable and supportive environment in which to thrive.
ACEs are Adverse Childhood Experiences or traumatic events such as abuse, neglect and household dysfunction. These experiences cause toxic stress chemicals to be produced that impact brain development, a child’s ability to learn and focus in school and grow up to be happy, healthy, productive members of the community. ACEs affect all socio-economic classes. Left untreated, they cause heart disease, immune suppression and mental health disorders.
Adverse Childhood Experiences can be prevented and education is the key. We bring ACEs education to schools, churches and community organizations, creating trauma informed teams that help create solutions to this public health problem.
