Raechelle Devereaux, a member of our Rotary Club of Guelph and CEO of the Guelph Community Health Centre, invites all interested to attend a free, online COMMUNITY RESILIENCE SUMMIT on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 from 9am-12noon.  Register in advance here
It's a half-day of learning led by the ACEs coalition. (ACE stands for Adverse Childhood Experiences.) The summit will dig into the role each of us can play in building resilience into our communities, building partnerships across multiple sectors to make our communities stronger and more equitable.
Resilience is much more than our personal capacity to overcome adversity. It is instead a reflection of how well individuals, families, employers and communities work together to create opportunities for people to navigate their way to the resources they need for well-being. When individuals, families, and neighbourhoods struggle, there are implications for all of us.
Thriving communities happen when people come together to share ideas and collaborate on solutions ... exactly what Rotary aims for.
