SFP&SC was formed to service the communities of Sahuarita and Green Valley and local areas with education, prevention, outreach, and resources for behavioral health issues. With funding from the Arizona Parent's Commission on Drug Education and Prevention for the Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family we will serve adults and youth in programs to improve their knowledge of Mental Health and Substance Use and assist in providing tools and coping skills to improve their communication and connection.

The Youth Coalition was formed to support community youth in co-decided fun activities as well as providing educational curriculums and life skills programs. Some of the activities that we have participated in were going to the GV Animal Shelter, Sahuarita Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Dave & Busters, Triple Play and learning the Too Good For Drugs program. The youth will learn how to work as a team, communicate, share ideas, and educate themselves with tools for becoming a more responsible contributor to their families and communities.
Our mission of the SFP is to provide an evidence-based program to improve family relationships, increase communication, reduce stress, anxiety and transform negative behaviors into positive healthy behaviors within the family unit. The tools learned are life skills that will also be beneficial in all relationships. We will be starting one group of sessions beginning in September 2020 and another starting in January 2021. Our September sessions will be held on Zoom. We are hopeful that we our January 2021 sessions will be face to face. Each session includes family time and separate parent and teen breakout sessions.
Please see the testimonials below to see what a great family experience this curriculum provides.
OUR PROGRAMS ARE IMPLEMENTED TO SERVE THE FAMILIES IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH TOOLS TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION WITHIN THEIR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITY AND EDUCATE ABOUT ISSUES PREVALENT IN THEIR LIVES. WE PROVIDE PRESENTATIONS, WORKSHOPS AND COLLABORATE WITH OTHER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

I would recommend the class to family and friends. Female Teen
It helped me listen more and it was really nice to hear from the other parents and to be able to bounce ideas off of them when problems arose in our own families. Female Parent
At first I was skeptical; however, I can say by the end of the class I have a different look on things. It was good to know that a lot of our problems are not specific to my family and other people have the same issues we have. It was good to feel not alone with things. All in all, it was a great class and I am happy to have been a part of it. Male Parent.
