The opioid epidemic that is plaguing the nation is taking a heavy toll on a particularly vulnerable group: the children of those with substance use disorders. While many of these children are being sent to live with grandparents or other family members when parent overdoses or displays other problems, a growing number are being placed in the foster care system, which in many states is struggling to keep up with demand.
We provide an alternative to a negative lifestyle and negative decision-making. Through community outreach services such as drugs and alcohol prevention classes, computer classes, educational programs, sports leagues, creative/performing arts platforms, financial support, and more. We seek to improve the future generations of our youth which will lead to stronger, more united and positive communities.
The project will educate the youth about drug abuse and better decision making and living a drug-free lifestyle. Educated youth go on to educate their children and benefit their communities economy.
