Our Programs

Drug, Alcohol, Violence & Gambling Prevention Programs
Youth at risk of adolescent delinquency often come from stressed and socially isolated families. These children also frequently fail in school and may eventually drop out. We provide prevention programs that bring at-risk children and their families together through prevention education groups to strengthen families and increase the likelihood that children will succeed at home, at school, and in the community.

Learning to think and act positively leads kids to feel good about themselves and improve their self-esteem. We strive to provide our kids the resources to develop positive ways to address these important issues on a daily basis and teach kids to value the important parts of life.

Based on research through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), our prevention programs build protective factors for children and increase parent involvement with the family, other parents, the school, and the community.

Our FREE Drug, Alcohol, Violence and Gambling Prevention Classes are offered to schools, social service agencies, community centers and religious organizations of Erie County, Pennsylvania. In partnership with the Erie County Office of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, our programs aim to raise awareness and knowledge concerning these at-risk behaviors among youth, parents, and the community-at-large.
