Prevention takes a village.

PG Cares is an evidence-based prevention coalition working to strengthen families, build community resilience, and reduce the risk of addiction, abuse, and suicide.

We work to foster well-being for individuals, families, schools, and businesses in our community. We offer classes, community events, and information on local resources in order to create a safe and connected community.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to raising awareness, removing stigmas, and facilitating education and resources around the tough issues we face in our families and as a community.

Thank you for the Guiding Good Choices Parenting workshop. It can be hard to find the time, but you have made it possible by providing dinner and helping with the kids. Otherwise, I know I wouldn’t have had access to the amazing information that I know will help my family.

The QPR Suicide Prevention Training class is for everyone. I didn’t think I would need them, but I have used the skills I learned in the training, even in my own classroom. I am so grateful for what I learned in this class. It really can help save lives.

I loved the United Way EveryDay Strong Resilience training. It’s like the parenting manual I’ve always wanted to have! I loved learning how to build my kids’ confidence, which is always a concern as a parent.

Positive Action Classes

Positive Action is a program based on the intuitive philosophy that we feel good about ourselves when we do positive actions. PG Cares offers Positive Action classes to local elementary schools free of charge. Interested in how Positive Action can help your classroom?

Positive Action Club has been such a fun class to teach. I have seen students learn to feel safe in their own lives. I have seen students dealing with hard home lives find some peace as we teach them techniques to understand things that are in their control and things that aren't. It has been such a good reminder to myself as well to remember that my thoughts equal my actions equal how I feel about myself. I'm more at peace with myself and the world around me.
