Making a Difference:
The Bounce Coalition's Story
Thanks to the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky's Investing in Kentucky's Future initiative, the Bounce Coalition was born. And with backbone support from Kentucky Youth Advocates, it now continues as a program of the state's premier independent voice for kids.
This short video tells the story--and how the movement to build awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences and practices that foster resilience is making a difference for children today and across their lifetimes. 

Adverse Childhood Experiences

Louisville’s first Resilience Strategy addresses the city’s most pressing and interconnected challenges. It is a roadmap to adapt systems and institutions to the challenges of the 21st century. 

One of 4 "vision areas" is ensuring a safe and healthy city to support Louisville’s most vulnerable populations. Strategies include implementing trauma-informed violence reduction initiatives and strengthening built and natural infrastructure to promote health and well-being.

The Bounce Coalition is a project of Kentucky Youth Advocates,

Kentucky's independent voice for kids.
