Linda Chamberlain presents on ACE'sThe Homer Prevention Project

is a collaborative effort focused on reducing the cycle of adult heavy and binge drinking, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) that result from adult heavy and binge drinking, and underage drinking in the Homer and Anchor Point area.

 

The Homer Prevention Project is funded by a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) from the State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Behavioral Health, which is in turn funded by a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

 

Homer is one of six grantees in the State of Alaska, and work funded through this project must support the State of Alaska's two SPF SIG priority areas:

  • Reducing underage drinking (ages 12-20)
  • Reducing adult heavy and binge drinking (ages 21-44)

The Homer Prevention Project is guided by a coalition of stakeholders in the community representing healthcare and social service providers, schools, law enforcement, local businesses, youth, parents and other interested community members.  The Homer Prevention Project builds off the foundation laid by MAPP of the Southern Kenai Peninsula, and supports MAPP's community-driven priority to address substance abuse and domestic violence.
