WHO ARE WE?

Peaceful Households is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, community based organization dedicated to improving life outcomes through trauma informed care and the prevention of child maltreatment. We do this primarily through the advancement of childhood trauma and adversity education. Located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado we serve the entire United States and child advocates worldwide.

 

OUR MISSION

To improve the health, social-emotional and economic outcomes
for children and families by providing the foundation, leadership
and education to build and sustain a trauma responsive community.

OUR VISION

 
The vision of Peaceful Households is to ensure a safe, nurturing and predictable environment for children and their families.

OUR HISTORY

 

Peaceful Households was established in 2013 with a focus on advancing Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention education in Colorado communities. We started our initiative by becoming the lead organization for the Colorado ACE Collaboration (CAC) which spearheaded community-wide ACE education, including the development of ACE Master Trainers within public and private organizations.

With ACEs as a foundation we have expanded our focus and teachings in trauma and adversity. During this journey we have leveraged our community partnerships to reach diverse audiences, brought renowned experts to Colorado to speak and teach during our conferences and developed specialized curriculum.

Today we serve the entire United States offering a host of high quality, online education courses in Childhood Trauma and Adversity.

HOW WE DO IT

 

We provide a variety of online courses in Childhood Trauma and Adversity designed to help organizations and communities build trauma informed cultures.

Our curriculum is presented by highly qualified professionals using the latest research from renowned experts and institutions.

 

We don't just help people understand the science, we help translate research into real life application.  

WHY WE DO IT

First and foremost we do it because of our children. Secondly, studies clearly indicate that in order to improve life outcomes for individuals we must look beyond traditional approaches and extend our reach to better understand and respond to a person’s life experiences. This involves creating awareness and solutions at a community, organization and individual level. Hence a trauma informed community.​
