our Communities

 

Coalitions of individuals in Kansas City and St. Louis formed Alive and Well Communities in 2017 with the vision of growing the work beyond these two regions. Today, in addition to the immediate metro areas of St. Louis and Kansas City, community members in East St. Louis, Illinois, and Jefferson County, Missouri, are actively working to make their communities Alive and Well.

East St. Louis, Illinois

Alive and Well Communities is advancing the East Side Aligned movement to improve child well-being within Greater East St. Louis. In partnership with various East St. Louis area partners, Alive and Well provides Trauma Awareness trainings open to the public; is supporting youth-serving agencies in their effort to become trauma informed; and is working with community residents hired as consultants to engage their communities in using the science of trauma, toxic stress and resiliency to promote community care.

Jefferson County, Missouri

A group of stakeholders in Jefferson County, Missouri, formed an Alive and Well Jeff Co committee in 2017. Since then, they have hosted several community meetings to plan future direction, to provide trainings and to develop the knowledge of community members. Today, they are actively recruiting Ambassadors to support the work of Alive and Well Jeff Co.
