Phoenixville ACEs Committee

A local group of service providers, educators, first responders, medical professionals, funders have created a coalition dedicated to preventing and healing Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs.

Founded in 2016, the Phoenixville ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Committee was created with the guidance of the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation. The Committee consists of 38 members of the greater Phoenixville area. Their mission is to create a trauma-informed community through public awareness and education while also promoting healing, building resilience, and mobilizing connections to prevent and reduce the impact of ACEs.
