As part of April's Alcohol Awareness...
IMPACT, the grassroots collaboration of schools, social service agencies and community services, unveiled their new website in February 2017. The goal of IMPACT is to increase awareness of teen drug and alcohol use and provide resources to youth, parents and professionals to combat substance abuse among children and teens in the Oak Park/River Forest area.
Visit their new website at http://www.impactoprf.org/.
For the past 14 years, Oak Park and River Forest taxing units have supported the Township Youth Interventionist team to counter youth substance abuse across all jurisdictions. IMP.A.C.T. has expanded that commitment, activating parents and community leaders to raise parent awareness of their essential role in addressing youth behavior. IMP.A.C.T. is truly parents and community acting together to help our youth realize “Your Life Is Your Choice.” To get involved, contact IMPACToprf@gmail.com or visit their website at http://www.impactoprf.org.
