SAFE (Substance Abuse Free Environment, Inc.)
June 28, 2011

I first got involved with SAFE through my job. I soon found out that the SAFE Coalition actually got things done. They "put feet to their words". Because of the way this coalition worked I had a desire to become a board member.

One of the things that has impressed me is the way that every member is valued for what they can bring to the table no matter how small or large the contribution. Safe is effective at revealing the fact that everyone has something to offer. They truely show that through teamwork we can all make a difference.

This coalition has done it's homework through the years. Using bench marking, assessment tools and innovative approaches SAFE is able to address many substance abuse issues. After addressing issues SAFE is quick to review, evaluate and share data.

Thanks to SAFE's leadership many of us have been more effective at weaving prevention into all aspects of our lives.
