Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsors make it happen!

The BRIDGES TO RESILIENCE conference increases awareness of the impacts of childhood adversity, and the promise of strategies to build resilience. With support from sponsors like you, it builds our capacity to achieve cross-sector collaboration and transformative systems change countywide. We know you'll want to be part of this!

The conference is filled to capacity each year with hundreds of people encompassing every profession that works with children and families, as well as local parents and foster parents. Evaluations show high satisfaction with the speakers and material. Participants appreciate the opportunity to network across sectors: meeting community partners, learning about complementary programs, and identifying potential partnerships.

This year we have an award-winning keynote speaker with a record of helping communities integrate science and local wisdom to make great improvements in health and well-being. We have breakout sessions on everything from cross-sector collaborations in our County, to trauma-informed tools for teachers. And we'll bring it all together at the end of the day, with a re-convening that helps us discover possibilities and identify priorities moving forward.
