News & Notes

During the COPE 2 ½ hour immersive experience, I slipped into the lives of fictional families, representing a cross-section of our communities, that face poverty every single day.  Until COPE, I’ve never known the fear of not knowing how I was going to take care of my family. 

I thought the experiential nature of this training would help me more deeply understand the complexities of poverty, paving the way for us to address the issues of poverty more comprehensively. What I wasn’t counting on was all the emotions I experienced during this simulation.

Mother Teresa said, “I alone can’t change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” My name is Reanna Liversage, and I am blessed to be the director of community coalitions for Drug Prevention Resources. I firmly believe that, like Mother Teresa, we can come together to cast stones across the waters of our communities, creating many ripples to achieve long-lasting change.

Over the summer, students lit up in our super-fun activity classes. They made terrariums, clay pots, had equine therapy, learned how to hula dance and created stuffed animals. We helped them shake off the stresses of school. At every event/activity, kids told us how much the play time helped them by teaching them how to do new things and how to feel good about their creations. We want to do more as we build out our school-time activity schedule! We are passionate about helping your children grow into healthy young adults AND we need your help.
