The HFY Prevention Program not only educates HFY youth, staff and foster parents but also reaches youth in our community. Two of our team featured here, Kim and Alyssa, successfully reach many youth every month.
A snapshot of a month within Prevention:
1) A presentation to foster parents on the effects of marijuana and alcohol on the teenage brain.
2) Weekly presentations, open to staff, on the heroin & opioid epidemic, vaping, effects of marijuana on the teenage brain, effects of alcohol on the teenage brain and bullying.
3) 1,050 kids served in the Amityville School District with the Too Good for Drugs program
We are grateful for our the team, teaching youth that there are benefits to making healthy choices!
