$500,000 Grant to Help San Bernardino County Fight Youth Opioid Crisis
In making the announcement YAP founder Joseph William will be accompanied by Rep. Pete Aguilar, Rialto Mayor Deborah Robertson and San Bernardino Mayor Carey Davis. The grant will allow YAP and strategic partners Young Visionaries Executive Director Terrance Stone and Sigma Beta Xi Director Corey Jackson to detect and assist Inland Empire students who show risk factors for opioid abuse.
“Our region has not been immune to the nationwide opioid crisis, and too often when a young person in our community struggles with addiction, they have no clear place to turn. I’m grateful for the work of Youth Action Project to provide Inland Empire youth with the resources they need to lead happy and successful lives free from the weight of opioid addiction,” said Rep. Aguilar.
