Burke County began programming for the Spring 2019 Empowering Youth and Families Program on Tuesday, March 19th, in partnership with the Burke County Health Department and Burke Recovery. This was the first family cohort to participate in EYFP in Burke County. Each family participates in a ten 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.
