Our Vision

We envision an Illinois where systems support schools, families, and communities working together to ensure that all children have the educational, health and social-emotional support they need to be successful in life.  Partnership for Resilience exists to mitigate the impact of toxic stress in the lives of children, their families and the communities where they live.

Our Mission

Our mission to improve the academic, health, and social outcomes for children by fostering trauma-responsive schools alongside effective family, school, health, and community partnerships.
