Holy Resurrection Orthodox Christian Church
Through the coalition we have formed the Youth Advisory Council. This group allows the kids of our community, both Orthodox and non-Orthodox, to have a voice on the types of prevention programs and activities they would like the coalition to bring into fruition. Our vision is to provide programs and activities on a regular, ongoing basis to help our community's kids make healthy decision, and to bring their families closer together. We believe that strengthening family bonds and providing kids with positive, pro-social outlets for growth will help them make better choices when faced with the pressures which may lead to substance use and abuse.
