Announcing All In For Kids!
Futures Without Violence is excited to announce the launch and selection of grantees for All In For Kids, a new multi-donor initiative focused on preventing traumatic childhood experiences and supporting Bay Area families and communities affected by trauma and domestic violence. Futures Without Violence has joined Genentech, Blue Shield of California Foundation and First 5 Sonoma County to create this unique partnership.
About All In For Kids
Childhood adversity is one of the most devastating public health crises of our time. We all experience stress growing up — and some level of adversity can help a child learn to navigate the world — but repeated exposure to trauma (domestic violence, abuse, neglect or other significant life stressors like poverty and discrimination) can harm children’s developing brains and bodies in the long-term.
But there is hope.
Children and communities can heal if support systems are in place, working together and listening to families — at home, in the community, at school, and in the doctor’s office — and if the underlying conditions causing adversity are addressed.
All In For Kids is a Bay Area initiative dedicated to preventing and ending early childhood adversity in partnership with kids, families and communities that are disproportionately affected by trauma.

All In For Our Community
In early childhood – when brains and bodies are still developing – repeated exposure to traumatic stress can cause long-term harm, including higher rates of life-threatening diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma and Alzheimer’s. In school, kids experiencing traumatic stress are 2.5x more likely to fail a grade and score lower on standardized tests.
But there are solutions.
