Georgia’s Essentials Initiative team is working to build resilient communities, address and prevent adverse childhood experiences, improve community environments, and reduce and destigmatize trauma.? ?
Georgia Essentials for Childhood is part of a comprehensive effort for child abuse and neglect prevention across several states using the Essentials for Childhood framework developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They are working to build resilient communities, address and prevent adverse childhood experiences, improve community environments, and reduce and destigmatize trauma. Georgia Essentials views this work through an intentional equity and racial justice lens. A child’s race, ethnicity, gender, family income, or neighborhood should not predict their future success and well-being.
