Our community is no different than any other community in America when it comes to substance abuse and bullying issues and concerns. We have youth and young adults who use/abuse drugs and alcohol and many are predisposed to substance abuse disorder. We have serious concerns with youth who bully others or are bullied. Our community has a committed group of parents, educators, community leaders, youth and young adults that are facing the problem head on and are doing something about it.
Our goal is straightforward – We are collaborators who work to support youth with prevention education, access to resources, and peer-to-peer encouragement so that they can live above influences that don’t support being the best that they can be. We look at ourselves as partners with Living Above the Influence. We hope this web site serves as a resource for finding the tools that meet your needs and your circumstances. We hope you will help and support us in this very important mission – for our children, for our families, and for our community.
