At a community summit Monday, about a hundred newly minted "Be the One" ambassadors brainstormed ways to build safe, stable, nurturing relationships throughout Tompkins County.

"Relationships are the key to building resilience," said Jaydn McCune, program director for the Collaborative Solutions Network at Franziska Racker Centers. Decades of research show that safe, stable, nurturing relationships provide a buffer against the consequences of chronic stress and trauma. The "Be the One" campaign, spearheaded by McCune and partners across multiple organizations, is an effort to build resilience in the Tompkins community by fostering supportive relationships.
