25th Making Healthful Decisions Conference Request for Proposals March 17, 2023, marks the 25th anniversary of the Making Healthful Decisions Conference (MHDC).

October Status

November 6th, 2022|

We made it through October and all of our coalition and Red Ribbon Week events/activities! We have roughly 200 submissions for a youth engagement survey created by Beverly Braxton from We The People. We will be working to organize the data before sharing it with the schools and others. This 5 question survey really focused on the needs of youth in Orange County. It asked what the top 5 topics that concern them the most are. They selected things like: depression, anxiety, gender identity, racism, physical and mental burnout, uncertainty for the future, peer pressure etc. It also asked what makes them hopeful for the future and what is good in their world. As well as a few other questions. We are really excited to organize all of these responses and see their suggestions on how we can better reach them and provide resources.   Trunk or Treat raised roughly $2,500 for the schools and the coalition. How Exciting!! The SADD Club did a great job with the haunted house, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

National Night Out 2022

June 23rd, 2022|

YOU'RE INVITED ! The Warwick Valley Prevention Coalition has partnered with the Town of Warwick Police Department and the Town & Village of Warwick to host an initiative called National Night Out here in Warwick. This free family event will be held on Tuesday August 2nd from 5:30-8:30pm at Memorial Park. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. The best way to build a safer community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings. National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities and its resources. This is an event we will look forward to each year. Parents and their children have the opportunity to see squad cars, various emergency response vehicles and learn about a wide variety of safety topics and partake in numerous interactive family friendly activities. We will have live music, demonstrations, food, and
