Our Mission


Alive and Well Communities activates communities to heal. 

We do this together by: 

  • Elevating community wisdom centering those who have experienced trauma as leaders of the work.

  • Disrupting systemic oppression and responding to the impact of historical trauma.

  • Acting with urgency, not waiting for another day or generation.

  • Leading innovative solutions based on the science of trauma, toxic stress and resiliency.

Alive and Well Communities relies on gifts and contributions to support its important work.

What we do

The research is clear. Trauma and toxic stress are making many of us sick and together are a leading cause of poor health. Alive and Well Communities is dedicated to activating communities to build the capacity to heal from and prevent future trauma.
