Prevenci贸n Sin Fronteras II

Funded by the Arizona Governor鈥檚 Office of Youth, Faith, and Family (GOYFF), Amistades was awarded a new three-year grant to sustain Prevenci贸n Sin Fronteras (Prevention without Borders) in 2023. Due to the success of the first three years (2020-2023), Amistades will be able to continue this program in the rural border town of Douglas, Arizona. Prevenci贸n Sin Fronteras is a trauma-informed substance abuse prevention program that provides three evidence-based curriculums targeting youth vaping and marijuana use and methods to address factors related to low perceived risk of using these substances. The program also addresses the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), trauma, and toxic stress on youth substance use to help foster attachment and resiliency by building consistently safe, stable, and secure environments for youth. Community education and awareness messaging address perceived risks of youth substance abuse among those caring for youth and promote healthy family attachment by providing tangible trauma-informed suggestions and resources.
