KIDS Network was recently awarded a $150,000 Provider Engagement grant from ACEs Aware. KIDS Network serves as the hub for Santa Barbara County’s cross-sector ACEs initiative, Resilient Santa Barbara County (RSBC), and as a network partner for the Santa Barbara County Child Abuse Prevention Council. Learn more about the award here.
Through the ACEs Aware Provider Engagement Grant, KIDS Network will build on RSBC successes to strengthen care networks in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura Counties. Medi-Cal providers from all three counties will be invited to participate in virtual events with renowned speakers and local experts, designed to strengthen cross-sector relationships and increase awareness about ACEs, resilience, and trauma-informed care. Care networks from each county have been engaged to enhance presentations with information about local resources and intervention strategies.
