The Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation is seeking applications for its Children’s Initiative to support direct service programs that promote resilience, stability, and pyscho-social health for youth ages 14-21 who have been traumatized by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

The Foundation gives priority to programs that:
a) Actively solicit input from program beneficiaries in ways that guide the design, delivery, and refinement of the program.
b) Collaborate with other organizations to enhance the program curriculum, measure outcomes, or expand and share knowledge in order to better serve program beneficiaries.
c) Take a multidisciplinary and multidimensional approach, treating individuals holistically, and consider existing social and cultural contexts.
d) Educate significant adults (e.g., parent, foster parent, teacher, coach) in order to best serve program beneficiaries.
e) Serve youth segments that historically have less access to services, including youth of color, youth from rural communities, youth involved with state systems, refugees, LGBTQ youth, and those who have experienced sexual exploitation.
