You can Be the One!
Taking action is as simple as deciding to use your knowledge of the impact of adversity and toxic stress to consider what might have happened to someone before you work or engage with other people. By doing so, you can be the one person who helps make a difference for that person, or for your community.
Research shows that every individual has a sphere of influence in which to make a positive difference. The impact of disasters, traumatic events and ongoing adversity on children especially can be buffered with the support of a stable, caring adult. That person could be you.
Every person has a sphere of influence*, and Resilient Napa can help support you to use yours to help transform Napa using an understanding of resilience and adversity.
