DARE PROGRAMS RETURNING IN DEFIANCE AND WILLIAMS COUNTIES
It looks like DARE programs are making a comeback in northwest Ohio, and got funding from the Four County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services. The sheriff’s departments in Williams and Defiance Counties have re-established their drug awareness and resistance programs for youth, and were each given $7,500 to support them.
Northwest Ohio has saved more than $130,000 in psychiatric medications through the health partners pharmacy this year.
A reimbursement of $2,500 was made to the Maumee Valley Guidance Center for transporting clients to local hospitals for psychiatric services.
Cheryl Robbins, executive director of the Center for Child and Family Advocacy thanked the board for their support over the years, and reported she is retiring at the end of the year, when Beth Gerken will take-over her position.
And the Four County ADAMS board thanked voters for their support in a renewal levy in the general election.
