“If you wait for others, you may wait a lifetime.”
Remarkably Resilient Together is a community-based campaign to raise awareness about trauma, healing and resilience. “It takes all of us to heal each of us,” Kathleen, the oldest of the Harnish sisters and co-founder of TeamTech, likes to say. Our first campaign titled “It Starts With Me WyCo” launched in partnership with Alive & Thrive in Wyandotte County, KS on September 1, 2022. Click here to read the press release.
Gathering ideas from your community to heal your community is at the heart of the campaign. What we know is that community engagement is magical – it brings people together which in and of itself is healing. Ideas for healing are being collected around our four C’s of healing: Calming, Connecting, Caring and Courage. Our first deck of cards with ideas on the 4 C’s will be unveiled on November 5th when Kathleen presents at Alive & Thrive WyCo’s Second Annual Healing Conference.

We Harnish sisters have known for a lifetime the difference one person can make. We have known for a lifetime the difference community makes. Neuroscience confirms this – it only takes one safe loving consistent adult relationship to help a child be resilient…and adults are no different.
When we wrote Remarkably Resilient: Community Matters we hoped to raise awareness about childhood trauma and the paths to healing and resilience. In our thinking about how to continue our awareness-raising efforts, the idea for “Remarkably Resilient Together” was born. We hope healing and resilience spreads throughout our communities. As our book sub-title says, “Community Matters.”
