06/13/19: Our families met again to discuss the community event that we will be supporting in September. It is a 3-day event beginning on Thursday, September 12th with a showing of Tonier Cain-Muldrow’s biography film, “Healing Neen”. On Friday the 13th, Tonier will teach a professional development series on using the R.I.C.H. approach when interacting with the public who is in the process of recovery. We will close everything out on Saturday the 14th with a Recovery Rally that will focus on bringing families together to build a recovery-supportive community.
The Yancey Cooperative Extension team plans to host a booth at the rally with our families that have participated in the Empowering Youth and Families Program. We’re excited to see the community embracing recovery and prevention in a positive way, and we are proud to be part of these programs and events that are making an impact on our county.
