We seek to reduce and prevent adolescent substance use. Programming includes prevention curriculum, communication campaigns, youth advisory councils, parent workshops, and more.

We engage youth, families, schools, organizations and communities to promote healthy behaviors, reach marginalized youth, and improve the quality of life for all. 

Public Health

We seek to improve the health of under-served communities and believes that all people can benefit from education, tools, resources, and more.

We believe that people can and do recover from opioid and other substance use issues. Services are rooted in a harm reduction approach and seek to meet people where they are.
