Mission Statement

The Resilient Child Fund improves the lives of children and adolescents who have had an adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) by providing trauma-informed Creative Healing Arts Therapies within existing or emerging therapeutic programs.


Resilience is the innate ability to rise above difficult circumstances. The Resilient Child Fund believes that we are all born with an inner capacity to heal. Like a twig that is bent and then goes back to its original position or a rubber band that springs back to its original shape, resilience is part of who we are. Children are already equipped with strengths and abilities that assist in healing trauma, change and misfortune. It is our mission to foster resilience by supporting children in recognizing their inner resources, thus gaining the confidence needed to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
