Help Protect Your Family and the Community With EYFP

— Written By

This is a reminder that our Empowering Youth & Families Program will begin on Thursday, March 18, 2021, at 6 p.m. via Zoom. Families will have the opportunity to have a break from work, school, and any other stress they may have to fellowship with others to develop skills to promote change in their community. This is also a chance for your family to meet new friends in the community. In our sessions, caregivers and youth are provided training in family building and information about opioid misuse to protect your family from the dangers of addiction. Opioid addiction is a serious issue in our country and our goal is to prevent any health problems and heartbreak associated with addiction.

Previous participants reported that their families were better equipped to communicate the dangers of substance misuse with their youth, setting boundaries, and assisting in making healthy lifestyle choices. Meals will be provided at each meeting as well as all the materials needed for activities and games.
