Project: Breaking the Cycle

Breaking the Cycle utilizes targeted needs sensing activities to identify areas of concern related to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and collaborates with community members to design effective, evidence-informed programming. 

The development of the program has been made possible by a grant through the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation and currently serves Logan, Mercer, Nicholas, Roane, and Tucker counties in West Virginia.
