About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to support parents and caregivers as they talk with their children and young people about fentanyl, the dangers of counterfeit pills, and the new chemical drug landscape.

Our Vision

We will provide a comprehensive resource hub that curates critical information and communication tools that empower families to keep their loved ones safe.
