The Risk to Resiliency coalition is a community initiative through the United Way of Central Washington, seeking to work with all members of the community to reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences and foster resiliency within Yakima and Kittitas Counties. We seek to inspire inter-agency collaboration in order to empower people to create a trauma-informed Yakima and Kittitas Valley where resiliency is both accessible and equitable for all.
