our story


Small Talk started with the dream that we could make a difference in the life of just one child by providing a safe place for healing. A simple concept, but a tremendous responsibility. Alex Brace began as our organization's first employee and now leads it today as our Executive Director. Alex and the dedicated staff are committed to guiding children through the worst possible trauma and giving them an opportunity to heal.  We have stood together; founder, staff, board, professionals and community partners and watched the dream of Small Talk become a reality.  Just five years later, we have grown our dream into a state of the art center leading the community in addressing child abuse and empowering children to have the courage to heal.


We ask you to raise your hand today and join us in our commitment to these brave children.
