The Arise and Shine YES program engages children living in poverty with transformational programs and activities that boosts confidence, encourages dignity and leads to self-sufficiency.  The program also addresses Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES)

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic events occurring before age 18. ACEs include all types of abuse and neglect as well as parental mental illness, substance use, divorce, incarceration, and domestic violence. A landmark study in the 1990s found a significant relationship between the number of ACEs a person experienced and a variety of negative outcomes in adulthood, including poor physical and mental health, substance abuse, and risky behaviors.1 The more ACEs experienced, the greater the risk for these outcomes
