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), GOYFF aids in the distribution of approximately $2.52 million in funding through a competitive grant application process. In the most recent Request for Grant Applications (RFGA), GOYFF contracted with organizations to implement programming from the five-step Strategic Prevention Framework that works to prevent or reduce alcohol and/or marijuana use among persons aged 9 to 20 currently or formerly involved in foster care and/or their caregivers. The program is also designed to increase the capacity of certified substance abuse prevention workers through the provision of prevention education and certification opportunities. Collectively, the PFS program in Arizona is providing prevention services in rural, urban, and tribal communities in 12 of 15 counties throughout the state.
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 Anthony Amezquita, Program Administrator.
