HELP US EXPAND

The AWARENESS Program is a not for profit 501c3 without formalized funding.
We have proven the program works. Five months into 2013, six adolescents overcame
addiction with five more testing this month.
The key is keeping recovered peers working with new participants. We need to
compensate them, so they can afford time to help others cross the bridge to sobriety.

- All funds will go directly to support adolescents.

How does AWARENESS work?

B4
AWARENESS is fighting for the sobriety of our children. Ulster County has the highest incidences of underage drinking and drinking and driving in New York State. The absence of effective programs may mean these numbers will continue to grow. Youth who recieve underage drinking,drug ,shoplifting and anger charges can be mandated to our program by local Judges. Assistant district attorney John Rusk shares his experience. To fufill their community service requriement they come to weekly meetings organized by our Youth Intervention Team comprised of both ticketed teens and volunteers that are Mentors in our other program. Many choose to volunteer after being sent to the program.
