To our valued supporters,

On May 15, 2019, we will embark on a crowdfunding campaign intended to finance six no-cost training sessions to three communities that research indicates would benefit from increased resilience, and, who we feel are in a position to positively impact the quality of our current and future lives. Those communities are immigrants, students, and 1st. Responders.

Children are our future. We all benefit from our future decision-makers becoming more resilient in an era where these Skills & Attitudes have not evolved as naturally as in past generations. Immigrants bring value by way of diversifying our thinking. They can have a stabilizing effect on our economy. We need to focus on what is good in them and help them to manage the adversities that brought them to us. 1st. Responders are our lifelines. They face adversity daily. We need to help them help us by providing Skills & Attitudes and support that will enable them to better manage the trauma that they encounter.

Building Resilience, L.L.C. provides resilience training and tools to individuals and communities that wish to promote independent management of adversity and problem-solving among their members. We work with those who have a desire to create an atmosphere of peer support and mentoring within their communities. The focus of our training is on personal resilience because that is where the learning must start. When large groups of individuals develop resilience Skills & Attitudes, communities can be strengthened. Abundant research supports the affirmation that resilient individuals are the building blocks of resilient communities. It is our goal to build resilient communities; one individual at a time. 

Join us for a free presentation as we introduce ourselves, our training program and the services we have to offer on: March 14, 2019, from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.HopeGateWay Church, 509 Forest Avenue, Portland ME 04101  Continue reading “Building Resilience in Maine and Beyond”

Let’s Play BounceBack: 02/06/18 – Immigrants

It’s not easy for new arrivals. Immigrants face tremendous challenges upon entry and while adapting to American culture/systems. We are a nation built by immigrants. Many in our society seem to have forgotten this. Giving up one’s home and trying to make a new home in a country far away and unfamiliar is a difficult process. Language barriers alone present tremendous challenges. Continue reading “Let’s Play BounceBack: 02/06/18 – Immigrants”
