STEPS provides parents with tools to keep your kids healthy and safe.
The first step in the prevention of alcohol and substance use starts at home. Have a simple talk with your kids about the risks. It’s one of the most effective things you can do. The earlier you start talking to them about substances, the better. This raises the likelihood that kids will not engage in risk-taking behaviors.
There are many ways that parents and trusted adults can get involved in our coalition and become a partner in prevention.

Our Focus on Youth
STEPS was founded in 2007 with a mission to help our youth grow up to be caring, competent and successful. We develop programs and opportunities for young people to step up and showcase their best selves.
STEPS partners with Southington Public Schools to follow an Asset Building Classrooms (ABC) model. We also have a STEPS Youth Council and a classroom-based curriculum to improve student health and safety.
