For some kids Life is Good, for many others, it is not.
Childhood trauma is the single greatest public health threat facing our nation’s children.
We believe that every child is only one Playmaker away from becoming a happy, healthy adult.
Playmakers Help Kids Heal.
We Create Playmakers
Help Kids Heal
Life is Good Playmakers support childcare professionals and organizations to create
relationships and optimal environments where our most vulnerable kids can heal, learn, and grow.
Make A Difference
Early Childhood Trauma Can Lead to
Health Risk Behaviors
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Traumatic events such as poverty, violence, and illness have a negative, lasting effect on the health and well-being of kids.
Optimism Over Adversity
Positive relationships with responsible adult caregivers mitigates the impact of ACEs.
A Playmaker spreads the power of optimism by creating healing, life-changing relationships with kids who desperately need it.
