People

The Philadelphia ACE Task Force  (PATF) is comprised of leaders, both institutional and community-based, in our region who are committed to the work on childhood adversity (ACEs), trauma-informed practice, and resilience. The work of the Task Force is supported through staffing from the Health Federation of Philadelphia, and also the Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation as well as the wonderful institutions and individuals represented on the Steering Committee and the PATF membership.
