By providing extensive drug education programs and implementing community-based actions, we are committed to bringing our town back to life and creating a brighter future for the next generation.

Understanding the Need for Drug Education

Harlingen, like many communities across the country, has been deeply affected by the ever-growing problem of drug abuse. In order to combat this epidemic, we believe that education plays a vital role in prevention and rehabilitation. Our comprehensive drug education programs aim to inform individuals, families, and the community at large about the dangers of substance abuse, including the physical, emotional, and social consequences.

The Impact of Drug Education

With a strong focus on raising awareness, our initiatives have already begun to create a lasting impact. By empowering individuals with knowledge, we enable them to make informed decisions and navigate the complexities of substance abuse. Through our drug education programs, we equip community members with the necessary tools to identify signs of addiction, understand underlying causes, and provide support for those affected.

Community Actions and Initiatives

At Forward Church, we firmly believe that lasting change can only be achieved by actively engaging with the community. Our wide range of actions and initiatives serve as a testament to our commitment to bringing Harlingen back to life:

Drug Awareness Campaigns

We actively organize and participate in drug awareness campaigns, partnering with local schools, organizations, and law enforcement agencies. By spreading awareness at community events and through social media campaigns, we effectively reach a larger audience. Our goal is to educate as many individuals as possible about the dangers of substance abuse, helping them make positive choices and avoid drug-related pitfalls.

Support Groups

We provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals and families affected by substance abuse through our support groups. These groups offer a platform for sharing experiences, seeking guidance, and building a network of understanding individuals who can provide support on the path to recovery.

Collaboration with Rehabilitation Centers

Forward Church actively collaborates with rehabilitation centers, working hand in hand to provide comprehensive care for those battling addiction. Through this partnership, we offer a holistic approach to recovery, combining spiritual and emotional support with professional treatment programs.

Youth Outreach Programs

Recognizing the importance of reaching young minds early, we have developed engaging and interactive drug education programs tailored specifically for youth. By instilling a sense of empowerment and knowledge at an early age, we aim to prevent substance abuse and equip young individuals with the necessary tools to make positive choices.
