FREE Virtual Showing: August 6 at 6pm
Please join us for a virtual screening of the film RESILIENCE, a documentary about how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can negatively impact the brains and bodies of children.
Trauma is a real issue in Allegany County as a survey in 2019 showed that 13.5% of 6th graders and 35.2% of 12th graders reported two or more ACE’s, which puts them in at-risk consideration and has been shown to be related to many of the substance use and health risk behaviors included in the survey.
Cattaraugus Community Action will lead the presentation and follow-up discussion about Resilience. Local agencies will discuss local resources available in Allegany County.
