Regional Coalition: Resilient Communities of East Georgia
Mission & Broad Goals
The Augusta Coalition aims to lead a regional coalition of collaborative, community-based partnerships to prepare Augusta and the surrounding counties to address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Trauma Informed Care and Resilience.
The Augusta coalition is currently using partner engagement matrix to determine which partners are missing from our coalition and identifying ways to engage them in the process. As part of this effort, coordinators will include increasing trauma awareness as a goal in their annual strategic plan.
Key components to be implemented by partners include serving teens 13-19 in the 14-county area include:
Promoting coordinated Trauma-Informed Practices across Systems
Advancing workforce through recruitment, education, and development
Building awareness and a common language
Understanding about adversity and resilience
