Target demographics: communities use existing resources to provide an evidence-based parent/child prevention experience that is self-sustaining and provided on a scheduled basis so there is always a program coming up for families to access.

Direct beneficiaries per year: CANDLE, Inc. directly oversees Reality Tours in Butler & Westmoreland PA, reaching over 2,000 families. CANDLE, Inc's Reality Tour Program Model allowed other communities replicating the program to reach over 10,000 participants. Over 250 families enrolled in our Family Health Policy, home drug testing with love program.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: 1. Assist at Reality Tour as a Group Leader, Registration aid, Actor or assist with Photo Morphing. 2. Office help is sometimes needed in our Butler Office.

Geographic areas served: Reality Tours are in over a dozen PA counties and in 10 other states. For a complete listing of sites visit www.Realtiy Tour.org Family Health Policy is an online product accessible to anyone in the US

Programs: the Reality Tour Drug Prevention Program and Family Health Policy Home Drug-testing, CANDLE, Inc. gives communities and families the tools to educate the community on substance abuse prevalence and drug trends while imparting coping skills that can help families prevent experimentation.

Mission:
To provide sustainable and innovative drug/alcohol prevention programs that reach parent & child together.
Results:
Recently we have focused on collaborating with civic groups to start Reality Tours. As a result, the Norwin Lion's Club in Irwin, PA started a Reality Tour and the Grove City, PA Rotary started a Reality Tour as well. CANDLE, Inc. provides the Program Model, support and guidance for the start ups.
