Connections Matter: Developing Brain, Relationships, Community
If you have questions, please contact Blank Children's Hospital at 515-241-KIDS.
A caring relationship can give a child a great start. It can help someone with a history of trauma heal. It can improve the health of a neighbor and the well-being of a family.
Connections Matter is a community effort. We want everyone to know that fostering caring connections with the children, families and adults in your life matters to developing healthy brains, supportive relationships, and thriving communities.
This project is led by the Central Iowa ACEs 360 Steering Committee, Trauma Informed Care Project, and the Developing Brain Group.
