Support the Great Work of the Valley Youth Coalition – Donate Today!
No doubt you’ve seen the recent headlines regarding youth substance abuse, especially the heroin epidemic. Our local youth are at riskand we need your help.
During the past eleven years, the Valley Youth Coalition has made a measurable impact on the health of youth in our Valley by employing research-based strategies which have proven effective in reducing youth substance abuse. We have worked tirelessly to implement these strategies and interventions and, as a result, we have witnessed substantial reductions in the use of alcohol, marijuana, cigarettes, and abuse of prescription drugs. These efforts have been funded through the generous commitment of time and resources of our Coalition members and partners and the financial support from County and Federal grants.
All of this progress and hard work is now in jeopardy as our federal grant cycle is ending. We have secured several small grants, but at this time we must raise an additional $45,000 in local pledges if the work of the Coalition is to continue beyond this September 2017.
As time passes and trends change, your Santa Ynez Valley Youth Coalition remains committed to implementing proven strategies to protect every young person in our community from the ravages of substance abuse and addiction. Please consider joining us by making a significant donation today.
