Heathy Air: Smoke Free La Porte County- We focus on the CDC’s Best Practices in tobacco control, working in the community in prevention and cessation with a focus on disparately - affected populations.
Suicide Prevention & Education- We train teachers, first responders, parents, social service workers, and community members to recognize the warning signs of a person in a suicidal crisis, persuade them to seek help, and refer them to assistance.
