Our Mission

The Emily’s Hope Substance Use Prevention Curriculum is carefully designed to address growing concerns surrounding substance use and overdose in our communities. Our curriculum focuses on age-appropriate and evidence-based content that educates children about the risks of substance use while empowering them to make healthy choices. By fostering open communication between children, parents, and educators, we aim to create a supportive environment that promotes well-being and resilience.
