Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month is APRIL! 

We have gathered a few resources for our fellow Providers but also, for our families that may be experiencing feelings that could be detrimental for both the adult and the child. We want you to know that these feelings are only negative if you are not willing to get assistance with them.

If you see a child in trouble, you can report concerns at 1-800-252-5400

Call the Abuse Hotline toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, nationwide, or report with our secure website and get a response within 24 hours.

How is self-quarantine going? 

 

We understand this is a stressful time that we are all trying to navigate in different circumstances.
With that being said, we are doing a COVID-19 Items Drive!!

Please read below for ALL details:
We are requesting male and female hygiene products, non-parishable/long shelf-life food items and basic needs items or monetary donations for these items to be purchased. Long story short, we know what toll this will have on the people we serve (youth and their families), and we need your help getting them items they need to survive. Though we cannot estimate the toll it will have on the community as a whole, all leftover donations and funds will go to assistance of the community at-large.
*all items quarantined for 4 days prior to delivery and are packaged and sanitized by our healthy staff members using protective gear*

Please visit our Donation page for more details on how you can assist monetarily or with items you already have on hand.

Reminder that your donation is tax deductible whether it is tangible or monetary; just be sure to request the receipt from us.

*all items quarantined for 4 days prior to delivery and are packaged and sanitized by our healthy staff members using protective gear*

[Brief clarification on the photo used above: this photo was taken by our Founder, Megan, who is battling cancer and wears a mask every time she is at treatment and highly populated arenas. We wanted to clarify that we are not wasting supplies for a photo. This is her reality, amongst other peoples reality.]

 

In these COVID-19 times, we are making changes because we want to ensure you can still receive our Prevention Services!

We have made our Resource page open to the public. Usually, we bring resources and referral information with us to our sites for our service recipients. However, in order to still serve you, we wanted to make sure you all still had access to assistance and growth opportunities.

Our Resource page is updated monthly. Please take advantage of the opportunity to educate yourselves, protect yourselves and strengthen your families with our resources. If you would like additional assistance, please contact us and we can refer your to one of our trusted experts in life.

If you: have a resource, are a resource, or know of a resource that you would like for us to put on our resource list, let us know!

 

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!

Our Executive Director, Megan and our Program Director, Jonathan are shown in this photo the Addiction, Recovery and Families Conference hosted at Texas Tech University. The super cool Program Coordinator, Adam was also at the conference, he just didn't make the photo!  Our entire team really enjoys getting new knowledge, learning about the community, networking with other organizations and being able to take knowledge and pass it on to others! 

 

Curriculum Training!!

Our YPS staff had the pleasure of traveling to Dallas early March to get trained in Youth Connection - CBSG! Our staff had an intensive 1-day training to get all the knowledge pertaining to their primary Evidence-Based Curriculum for Selective Populations.

To equip our staff with all the tools they need to go out in the community to deliver Prevention services, we took the whole team to Georgetown, TX! 

Our staff enjoyed learning about ATOD, Ethics, Suicide Prevention, Supervising PS, Crisis Intervention, Special Populations, Culture and MORE! We spent 4 full days gaining great knowledge to spread throughout the Lubbock County! 

 

 

January 27th, 2020, The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce hosted
a Ribbon Cutting for our NEW Prevention Services building!!

We are so thankful to everyone that came out to support us.
