Northern ACEs Collaborative

Many Northern California Counties are disproportionately affected by high Adverse Child Experience (ACE) scores relative to other regions in California. Domestic violence is an indicator in the ACE spectrum along with other Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) which play a critical role in healthy families. 


The Population Health Innovation Lab (PHIL), a program of the Public Health Institute, will support the formation of a Northern California collaborative and act as the backbone, to support and enhance current activities in the five pilot target counties of: Butte, Glenn, Shasta, Tehama, and Trinity.  The focus is on identifying and addressing opportunities for policy and systems change that mitigate issues of trauma and domestic violence using the Life-Course Model. The Collaborative is built on existing long-standing partnerships in northern California rural counties. The counties have addressed various aspects of ACEs, Trauma and or DV individually. Given the similar demographic nature and large land mass of the participating rural counties, acknowledging the fluidity of the population, we propose a regional approach to address trauma and domestic violence.

The question we should be asking is not

"what is wrong with that child" but

"what happened to that child?"
