Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is the term used to describe all types of abuse, neglect, and other potentially traumatic experiences that occur to people under the age of 18. https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/childabuseandneglect/acestudy/aboutace.html
The ADRC provides information on a broad range of programs and services, helps people understand the various long-term care options available to them, helps people apply for programs and benefits, and serves as the access point for publicly-funded long-term care. https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/adrc/index.htm
