What is S.A.F.E. Homes ?
S.A.F.E. Homes (Support Alcohol Free Environment) - Is a program that raises awareness about underage drinking and illegal drug use in our community.
S.A.F.E. Homes families sign a pledge committing their homes to be alcohol free to minors.
Why Do We Need a.S.A.F.E. Homes Program?
◊ Young people are constantly faced with pressures to use alcohol and other drugs.
◊ Alcohol is advertised and glamorized in the media and there are many social messages directed to youth encouraging the use of all kinds of substances.
◊ By refusing to take a stand, adults condone behavior that is unhealthy for children.
We need to show that we care enough to stand together!
