Our Mission

MRBN promotes building resilience for Maine’s children, families and communities by increasing the understanding of the impacts of trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). We work to strengthen families and communities by increasing protective factors and resilience-building relationships. We aim for a comprehensive, cross-sector, and systematic approach to foster education, awareness and action.
