5/13/19 Week 11: Week 11 is upon us in Onslow County! Parent’s spent their session interacting with Mrs. Vanessa Sapp and Mrs. Cindy Patane of Snead’s Ferry’s H.O.P.E. (heroine, opiate, prevention, education)! Both these women tragically lost their sons a day apart due to opioid overdose. They shared their stories, warning signs they feel they missed, and the mission of their non-profit organization. The interaction between our guest speakers and parents was inspiring!
In the youth session, the youths talked with facilitators about positive personality traits and how those strengths help them with refusal skills. In family session we looked at the family resiliency of the participants and how they have grown through adversity.
