100% Community is the first book and series to provide each state, county and city with a systemwide process for ending the epidemic rates of adverse childhood experiences and trauma.

The book series provides all elected officials, agency leaders, and stakeholders with the tools to launch the 100% Community initiative—a data-driven, collaborative and countywide ACEs prevention initiative.

100% Community provides a step-by-step guide for every community to take action and go upstream to prevent trauma from happening in the first place. For all of us who believe that we can make every child a priority, this book shows the way.
– From the Foreword by Bill Soules, PhD, New Mexico State Senator

100% Community is the solution–the way to end adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). The book is an amazing evidence-based “how” to build a 100% trauma-informed and trauma-free community. In honor of all those we have lost too soon and for all those we will save. I’m all in!
– Matthew Probst, Chief Quality Officer and Medical Director at El Centro Family Health in Rural New Mexico
