Over the previous year, we have:

  • Working to integrate Intentional Peer Support with the youth at the Friends For Change activity group.

  • Supported youth in created passion projects designed to contribute to the community.

  • Shared resource and collaborated with community partners, hired a new director and prevention specialist.

  • Been successful in having two recovery coaches receive tobacco cessation training.

 

THANK YOU to those who have supported us with their generous contributions of time, money, and connection! We rely on the dedication of many people—like you—to help grow our programs. With your donation today of $25, $50, $250, or more, you can help us continue our work.

Stay tuned as we look forward to our upcoming plans:

  • Building intentional youth leadership through Advisory Board involvement as well as collaborating with schools around restorative practices, OVX/VKAT tobacco groups, and youth LGBTQ+ supports.

  • Partnering with Turning Point Recovery Center of Springfield and other community partners to grow and strengthen life-saving recovery and overdose prevention services in the Bellows Falls area.

  • Engaging with families with younger children with playgroups, parent dinners, education around LGBTQ+ in early childhood centers, and much more.
