How does ACE-informed programming, designed to mobilize resilience and recovery, serve to defray costly ACE consequences and prevent ACE transmission to the next generation?

Supporting the development of healthy citizens benefits everyone. Both the mobilization of healthy social networks and interventions geared to address a parent's own ACEs, for example, help to prevent intergenerational ACE transmission. Preventing ACEs and ACE consequences is profitable for society as a whole. Economic research already shows that early intervention programs with disadvantaged children has reduced the cost of services spent on that child $5.70 for every dollar.
