Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) threatens the health and well being of millions of people in this country and around the world. While some people seem to be able to overcome early trauma depending upon the intensity of the experience, many others suffer profound negative impact for the rest of their lives. Ironically, many of those deeply affected, perpetuate the same kind of experiences that damaged them in the first place, such as domestic abuse, child abuse, alcohol and/or drug addiction, failed relationships and early death from preventable diseases. Fortunately, good results have come from the identification of traumatized people suffering from the effects of ACE, when intervention strategies are made available to victims. Because the strategies are not overly complicated, and the pool of sufferers seem inordinately represented in families challenged by poverty, Lewis-Clark Early Childhood Program put together a plan to offer individuals with children enrolled in our program intervention strategies to follow through a pilot program we call Adverse Childhood Experiences Intervention/Prevention Project. We calculated the costs of such a program and figured we’d need about $50,000 to provide guided intervention strategies for about 30 adults. Our goal was to secure funding by July 1, 2014, and to launch the program at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. By May 20, 2014, we easily reached our funding goal, and we are deeply grateful to the following organizations for supporting our project: Twin County United Way $21,000; Inland Northwest Community Foundation $20,000; The Idaho Children’s Trust Fund $3,000;Clearwater Paper $1,500. We believe the project will accomplish some important goals. For example, intervention will improve the general health of the individuals involved, improve parenting skills, improve adult relationships, and perhaps most importantly, reduce the likelihood of traumatized adults perpetuating the cycle of domestic violence and child abuse in the Lewis-Clark Valley. Enrollment in the project will be voluntary, available to people with children enrolled in Head Start, Early Head Start, and/or Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program in Nez Perce and Asotin County. To qualify, candidates must take part in a survey that determines level of risk as estimated by the survey responses. Interventions will be individualized to address the diverse needs of the volunteer participants.
