Sanchia A Callender, Inc is excited to announce that we’ve been awarded a “What It…” mini-grant by the Gifford Foundation! The grant supports the Resilient CNY program and our work with the Syracuse City School District’s Parent University.

Throughout the 2018-2019 school year we are providing monthly workshops engaging the community in recognizing and addressing the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences. This work is vital to equipping our community to be one that is vibrant and thriving.

We are grateful to the Gifford Foundation and our Resilient CNY partners for investing in the health and well being of our community through organization.

Why ACEs, Trauma, & Resilience?

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) cause trauma that affects health and education. Trauma shows up as behavior in and out of the classroom. By using ACEs to identify sources of trauma we build resilient students and families leading to academic success.

Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

Join us for the free screening of this film Tuesday, November 13, 2018 5:30pm at Syracuse Stage. A panel of education, health, mental health, social services, law enforcement, and community leaders will discuss the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in their fields and what steps the Syracuse, NY community can take to address these issues.


The film screening is only the beginning. Each month during the school year, December to June, Resilient CNY is offering family engagement workshops and discussions through Syracuse City School District’s Parent University.
