Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), including childhood abuse/neglect, household dysfunction, and exposure to other traumatic stressors, have a large impact on health costs as well as social services, education, juvenile justice. Impact of ACE crosses socioeconomic boundaries. In 2011, the Vermont Department of Health reported that 58% of VT adults had experienced at least 1 ACE, and 17% of VT women had four or more ACEs.
