This past Monday I was able to attend the Community Forum on Student Safety at the high school with many other concerned parents and citizens, and the biggest take away for me, something that could make an immediate impact on school safety and the overall well being of our kids, is donations to Coronado SAFE. SAFE is a small non-profit in Coronado that provides programs that directly improve the emotional and behavioral health of our youth, and they work in the areas of prevention and intervention. These donations make it possible for the counselors to see more clients each week and lower the waitlist time for counseling, increase the amount of prevention work that they do, especially in the lower grades and in the area of building resiliency and reducing bullying. Long term, if we as a community could make a big effort to raise significant funds for them, they could hire the staff that would allow them to see clients who have a higher acuity (more severe risk factors), do more screenings, and oversee additional prevention programs – all of this would help to lower the risk of having kids slip through the cracks. Join me today in helping this amazing program for our kids!

Thank you!
Colleen Warren
