ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE (ACE) AWARENESS FOUNDATION
ABOUT THE ACE AWARENESS FOUNDATION
The Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Awareness Foundation, established in 2015, is helping to transform communities by promoting policy and practice that supports the healthy development of children. The Foundation is working to: (1) create a Greater Memphis community—and catalyze a statewide movement—that understands the deep and long-lasting impact that childhood trauma can have across the life span and (2) support innovative strategies that prevent toxic stress or lessen its negative effects on children and their families. The Foundation’s signature initiative is its Universal Parenting Places — UPPs. These judgment-free zones are places where parents can go for help with family-related issues and concerns, both big and small. They receive professional counseling, information, emotional support, and referrals; participate in stress-reduction exercises, parent-child activities, and discussion groups; and build social support networks that extend far beyond the walls of the UPPs.
