Project Runway to unveil strategic planby jmaloni
Project Runway, a new program to provide a pathway for drug- and alcohol-free living for young women, will introduce its strategic plan to the public at 4 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Beloved Community Event Center, 1710 Calumet Ave.
The plan incorporates suggestions made by community residents, youth group leaders and teenagers during a series of meetings held this summer, and will offer concrete ways to confront the serious issue of substance abuse among women in the community.
Funded by the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, Project Runway aims to increase community awareness of the issues surrounding substance use and abuse by girls and young women and to train health care professionals, including physicians, to effectively evaluate and treat those who use alcohol and drugs.
