This past year has been a source of unexpected stress and anxiety for so many, However RESILIENCE can help us get through and overcome the challenges we’ve been facing due to the pandemic, as well as other adversities we’ve experienced in life. 

 

But RESILIENCE is not something we’re born with - it’s built over time and is unique for each of us - that’s why we all respond to stressors differently.

 

So how best to cope and practice RESILIENCE during these uncertain times? We asked people from around Amador County to share how they’ve been coping, and we hope these examples and stories of RESILIENCE will inspire you!

Prevention, Education & Training

 

The Amador Child Abuse Prevention Council (ACAPC) provides free workshops and trainings in our community in order to bring awareness to and to prevent child abuse and neglect.

 

We believe that every child deserves to live a healthy and safe life free from violence.

                                             

The goals of the Council are to help community members become knowledgeable about what is child abuse, how to recognize it, how to report it, and what resources are available in our county to support families and children.  

 

Child abuse and neglect are preventable when all community members - including parents, families, care providers, neighbors, school staff, and governmental agencies - work together.

We are pleased to announce that CAPC has funding available for Family Strengthening mini-grant proposals for the 2020-21 fiscal year. One-time mini-grants will be awarded up to $2,000. For all the details and an application click on the links below.
