At ChildWIN®, we build resilience and social-emotional health within children and families.
Our Children's Wellness Initiative leads school personnel on the journey to develop a trauma-informed lens to better support students and their families. We know children and families live with high doses of trauma at home, in schools, and in their neighborhoods. With the global pandemic crisis, all children were impacted in some way. Trauma impacts a child's brain, body, and behaviors and ultimately affects the ability to learn in the classroom. To date, we’ve reached more than 5,000 educators who teach thousands of children.
Our new Youth Resilience Program helps students develop communication skills, set goals, and build resilience. Research has shown that “one caring adult” is needed to potentially change the trajectory of a child’s life. This program connects community leaders with underserved youth who benefit from mentorship and networking opportunities.
With your generous support, we will continue to expand our services and reach more children throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and beyond.
