The Community of HOPE Coalition convenes stakeholders to take a community-based approach to address the root causes of trauma and ACEs through the promotion of healthy outcomes from positive experiences and environments to build resilience, promote healing, and advance equity on a community level.

Our work is intended to amplify impact and advance systems change; it is not intended to replace the efforts of the many other communities or direct-service providers working towards similar goals. Instead, we strive to bring groups together to raise awareness and promote safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments.

We will use strategies from the Essentials for Childhood Framework, Positive Community Norms Framework, and the Center for Community Resilience to promote the types of relationships and environments that help children grow up to be healthy and productive citizens. We will raise awareness and commitment to promote safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments and prevent child abuse and neglect.

Together we will:

  • Develop a shared understanding and language around ACEs, Resilience, Hope, and our community narratives.
  • Asses the community’s state of readiness and use data to inform coalition actions.
  • Develop and engage cross-sector partnerships to support the efforts of the coalition.
  •  Engage our community to promote hope by supporting it to increase linkages to social supports, and programming and by creating policy and systems changes.
  • The Coalition will center our work around The Four Building Blocks of HOPE from the Tufts Medical Center framework.

This Coalition meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 3:30-5:00 pm via Teams.
