What Is A Safe Home?
We believe that our young people must feel that it is okay NOT to participate in the use of drugs or alcohol.
A Good Time Does Not Have To Include Drugs And Alcohol!
Members of the Springfield Township’s SAFE HOME PROGRAM take a public stand for our young people. A master list of supporters is published to give all parents the courage to say "no" to alcohol and drugs and encourage parents to stand firm for what they believe.
All parents are invited to join the SAFE HOME PROGRAM. Some parents prefer not to include their phone numbers. We encourage you to call; however, we will not publish the number if you so request. We want your support!
