UNICEF defines resilience as "the ability of children, communities and systems to anticipate, prevent, withstand, adapt to and recover from stresses and shocks advancing the rights of every child, especially the most disadvantaged."

Through the agency's ongoing work to provide wrap around services to children and families facing adversity and risk for secure emotional stability and well-being, we recognize the impact that this work has on providers.
