In helping Richmond residents become aware of and knowledgeable about substance misuse and addiction, the Community Prevention Program provides customized information, programs, and training opportunities for youth, families, older adults, educators, and other professionals. We develop, deliver, and support prevention programming in the elementary, secondary and alternative schools in Richmond, along with the general population and professionals throughout the community. Additionally, collaborative partnerships with other Richmond service providers are a priority for our prevention team.
RASS Staff tirelessly work towards building a connected community, supporting families and clients, while encouraging healthy lifestyles, coping skills, and resiliency. Program attention features a growing emphasis on capacity development, increasing self-awareness, compassion, and leadership skills. Community Prevention programming is free and open to the public. We welcome your service requests, which will be addressed according to availability and strategic affinity. We look forward to working with you!
