Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition & Cape Assist Host Public Forum To Discuss Substance Abuse Prevention Strategies
Cape Assist and the Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition invite the public to attend a Public Meeting to discuss substance abuse in their community.
Tuesday, June 28
6:30PM at Lower Township Municipal Building
2600 Bayshore Road, Lower Township NJ 08204
The purpose of the meeting is to explain how the 40 Developmental Assets program can help curb substance abuse and discuss the importance of community involvement. The 40 Developmental Assets program consists of building blocks to healthy development—known as Developmental Assets—that help young children grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. “Reaching our children and their families is paramount to prevention,” said Coalition Coordinator Steve Selby, “The Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition has been established to get parents and concerned citizens involved in the fight against substance abuse.”
Funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Lower Township Youth Coalition’s mission is to plan and implement strategies that prevent and reduce youth substance abuse and its associated consequences. The coalition consists of various members of the Lower Township community, including parents, business owners, and concerned Lower Township organizations and citizens.
For more information about the event or how to join the coalition, please contact: Cape Assist, Coalition Coordinator, Steve Selby at (609) 522-5960 or Steve@CAPEASSIST.ORG.
