Melissa Peace has extensive experience with teaching and training in the area of childhood trauma. In 2002, she helped establish and oversee the Children Who Witness Violence program, which served almost 3,000 traumatized children before the program was given to a 10-year community partner in 2010. She has also developed a program to link children who are evaluated for physical or sexual abuse by Akron Children’s Children at Risk Evaluation (CARE) Center to a mental health therapist. The program is funded by a grant that Peace wrote and submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice under the American Recovery Act Edward Byrne Memorial Competitive Grant Program.
