SUCCESS IN PREVENTION

Our programs work. The statistics above reflect that. We are proud to help our community understand the risks of substance use and make healthy choices.

We are able to do that because of your help. Businesses, civic leaders and citizens from across Milford contribute to our success. We also work closely with many organizations in our community. These groups and their leaders play a big part in making our programs happen.

  • City of Milford
  • Milford Police Department
  • Milford Public Schools
  • United Way of Milford
  • Woodruff Family YMCA
  • And many more!
