Stanly County began programming for the Spring 2019 Empowering Youth and Families Program in March 2019, in partnership with the Stanly County Department of Public Health. This was the first family cohort to participate in EYFP in Stanly County. Each family participates in a twelve session program that is designed to strengthen their relationships and empower them to lead community change. Families also take part in a weekend retreat at Black Mountain YMCA Assembly in May, where they learn community action planning and create a vision for opioid misuse prevention in their community.
