homeblurb_programs.jpg We believe community prevention dollars are best spent when we can match tested programs that we know will address the particular risks that are elevated and the protective factors that are low for our community’s youth. We support delivery of these proven strategies with a close eye on both quality of delivery and evidence of effectiveness.

Did you know...

People who threaten suicide are NOT merely seeking attention and / or trying to manipulate others.  All suicide threats must be taken seriously.  This behavior may be a sign of depression and professional help is needed.  While it may, in fact, be a manipulative act, it’s one that can end in death.  It is a cry for help.
