Regional Coalition: Resilient Communities of East Georgia

Mission & Broad Goals

Resilient Communities of East Georgia focuses its efforts on educating the community on the impacts of trauma and strengthening support for programs and services among teens in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). The 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.

  • Creating a network of leaders trained in building resiliency in their regions to improve mental health and ACEs awareness and resources, helping to transform the East Central region of Georgia

  • Including trauma awareness in their annual strategic plan and hosting annual summits

  • Building an advisory council that represents their mission, vision, and values and help support Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) change

  • Advancing the workforce through recruitment, education, and development

  • Expanding their reach from the programmatic focus of Resilient Teens to a broader community approach to resilience
