Initiatives/Programs

Crazy for My Kids

Crazy for My Kids is a community-wide campaign that urges parents to sign a pledge that no alcohol or other drugs will be available in their homes. When parents make this pledge, their names are added to a directory of safe homes. When their child asks to visit a friend, parents can check the directory to be sure that home is on the safe list. Crazy for My Kids is currently operating in the communities of Cedar Hill, Garland and Waxahachie. For more information about the campaign, check out crazyformykids.com or contact Adam Philyaw.  

Navarro Safe Homes Network

The Navarro Safe Homes Network is a program of IMPACT Navarro and Drug Prevention Resources. The Network consists of Navarro County families committed to providing safe, healthy homes for young people. We promise to actively supervise all gatherings of youth on our properties, to set appropriate expectations and consequences for children’s behavior, and to never allow the possession of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs by youth in Network homes. Members of the Network provide consistent NO USE messages about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs to teens. Look for more information at navarrosafehomes.com or contact Alvis Reeves.

Actuality Social Norm Campaign

This IMPACT Ennis initiative is based on the theory that people base their behavior on what they think others are doing. When students think their peers are making healthy choices, instead of destructive ones, they are more likely to make those same healthy choices for themselves. IMPACT Ennis is using their Actuality Social Norm Campaign to address perceptions around underage drinking. For more information, contact Tonya Nelson.

Students Working Against Tobacco

This student-led initiative is part of the Ellis County Tobacco Prevention and Control Coalition, better known as Smoke Free Ellis County, a program of IMPACT Waxahachie. Students conduct anti-tobacco activities that raise awareness through the county about youth access to cigarettes and other tobacco products. For more information, contact Jennifer Howard-Thompson.
