In an effort to bring the Arizona Partnerships for Success (PFS) to more communities, the Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) has partnered with organizations across the state to provide trauma informed and culturally competent substance abuse prevention programming to the communities that need it most.
Administered through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), approximately $2.5 million in funding goes to programming seeking to decrease marijuana and underage drinking misuse and abuse by current or former foster youth ages 9-20 and their caregivers through the implementation of the five-step Strategic Prevention Framework. The program is also designed to increase the capacity of certified substance abuse prevention workers through the provision of prevention education and certification opportunities. These services promote statewide collaboration between communities, government agencies, and other system stakeholders.
If you have questions about this program or would like to be connected to grantees who are currently providing prevention and educational programming in your community, please email your name, contact information, location, and requested programming/training to Susan Alameda, Substance Abuse Initiatives Manager.
