Check out this report on "The Raising of Frederick" by WHAG Reporter Katie Misuraca. As Malcolm Furgol, Director of Community Impact, pointed out, "This event is about how we can promote the healthy development and well-being of Frederick's children and their families, and to talk about what we can do better regarding bringing awareness to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)."
ACEs is a term used to describe a wide range of incredibly impactful factors that can contribute to lifelong physical and behavioral health of a child. Together with our partners, we are committed to ending the adversities facing children at risk. To learn more about ACEs and how you can get involved, please visit www.unitedwayfrederick.org/ACE
