Programs We Support

Education & Stigma Reduction

Our goal is to engage the community in a dialogue about drug use, addiction and the potential stigma that it carries. We want to foster a culture of compassion and understanding of those who are struggling. We are kicking off this this effort by partnering with local middle schools, like Hinsdale Middle School, to educate the youth and their parents.

Our future plan is to partner with continuing education programs for educators and local law enforcement to help de-stigmatize and change our mindset within the field.

Harm Reduction

Our first effort in 2019 is to fund a DuPage County mobile unit one day a week managed through Live4Lali. This unit will focus on harm reduction which is a model to maintain human dignity, while reducing physical, mental and emotional harm in the most practical ways by meeting those who are struggling where they are.
