Iowa ACEs 360 catalyzes a vibrant network to respond to ACEs in Iowa. Our success is our partners' success. We don't work alone.
In 2019, we released a new strategic plan to carry us forward for the next 3-5 years. That strategic plan centers on three strategies:
Advocating for Systems Change
We cultivate a network of advocates and build relationships with decision makers to encourage policies and systems
that reduce family stress and improve well-being.
Advancing Knowledge & Growing the Movement
We support leaders and providers who are working with children and families in learning about ACEs science and
applying healing-centered, trauma-informed approaches to their work.
Catalyzing Innovative Practices in Prevention & Healing
We cultivate pilot projects and collaborations that lead to shifts within systems and organizations, with a focus on
elevating perspectives of those most impacted by trauma.
Who we partner with
Everyone is invited.
We believe addressing ACEs and childhood trauma requires us to take a 360 degree approach with many stakeholders across sectors. Prevention and healing go hand and hand; in order to prevent future childhood trauma, we must identify policies and practices that help children and adults heal and create the conditions for everyone to thrive.
Iowa ACEs 360 is a 501(c)3 organization. We do not provide direct service, consultation, or referrals for individuals. Our focus is on building a network of many leaders who work together and independently to address ACEs.
