Description


Community organizations have come together to shed light on the issue of substance abuse among adolescents in Windsor-Essex County. The purpose of this event is to increase awareness, share information, and provide opportunities for education on this matter. If you are a parent, grandparent, guardian, caregiver, coaches, or teacher, you can have an impactful influence on the youth in your life.
