Community Coalition Partners

We are proud to partner with and learn from regional coalitions across Alaska that are organizing within their communities to prevent trauma and build resilience. This website is one place where regional coalitions can share the resources they’re developing and the lessons they’re learning along the way.

The two overarching goals of the Southern Kenai Peninsula (SKP) Resilience Coalition, a project of MAPP of Southern Kenai Peninsula, are to:

  1. Develop a trauma-informed community that recognizes the effects of trauma with a shared understanding and responds in an empathic and helpful way.
  2. Work collaboratively to increase family resiliency and prevent substance abuse, violence and trauma in the region.

Currently, the SKP Resilience Coalition is supporting a year-long trauma-informed learning community with the National Council on Behavioral Health and R.O.C.K. Mat-Su, with sponsorship support from ARI. The Coalition is also working with a communications contractor to develop and implement an effective communications campaign about trauma and resilience, seeking to send the message that everyone has a part to play in supporting children and families and in creating a healthy community.
