This year, the Oregon Alliance of Children’s program held their 2018 annual Summit at the beautiful Resort at the Mountain, at the base of Mt. Hood. Featuring Dr. Wendy Ellis and her team from Washington DC, to teach leaders of our memberships about Building Community Resilience, BCR.
BCR is a George Washington University led national collaborative and network seeking to improve the health of children, families and communities by sparking engagement between community services and public and private systems to create a protective buffer against Adverse Childhood Experiences, ACEs.

BCR was able to make personal connections for Oregon by using data such as posted in the graph below. They were also able to offer new ways for our community leaders to show how directly the data correlates to the lives of the people around them.
As part of the Summit, statewide members were able to
come together to brainstorm ideas on how to spark
the BCR movement.
Determining Policy Goals and Priorities
Small Groups worked on developmenting a call into action by addressing topics on what the most prevelant needs were in their communities.
They then brainstormed ideas of ways to successfully execute taking action on these needs by deciding who they would need to contact in order to obtain the necessary tools and allies for their common mission.
