Although I have been involved with SAFE for a relatively short period of time, I have had the wonderful opportunity to see first-hand the dedication and drive that the many members of this organization possess. The executive director, Wayne Frith, is truly passionate about eliminating the substance abuse problems that plague our community and school system, as are the other staff members that comprise SAFE. The campaign against inhalant abuse, which has been recognized on a national level for its effectiveness, was just one of a myriad of ideas that originated within the walls of this organization's headquarters. A recent effort to contain the A/C refrigerant abuse problem within our area was also a resounding success, as has been the ongoing campaign against underage drinking. All in all, SAFE is an incredible organization that has changed the lives of countless numbers of individuals throughout the Richmond Metro area. If our model were able to be replicated across the United States, there is no telling how many lives could be saved on a daily basis. I am truly proud to say that I am involved with such a wonderful group of individuals!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My community! The fact that county-wide abuse of inhalants and the number of stores selling alcohol to underage buyers in our community has decreased since the creation of this organization says a lot about the far-reaching impact that SAFE has!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give it more funding so that more staff positions could be created. SAFE needs all the manpower it can get!
