This Continuum of Sophistication helps to explain the scope of efforts needed to become a trauma informed care community.

The Health Federation of Philadelphia is excited to launch the Mobilizing Action for Resilient Communities (MARC) Program. MARC brings together 14 communities with well-established, multi-sector networks committed to building resilience and addressing early childhood adversity through an explicit application of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) science, language and data. Each network hasd succeeded in raising awareness of the significant impact ACEs have on children, families and communities - even society as a whole - and is poised to expand its groundbreaking work.
