Submitted by Bedford Youth and Family Services
The Safe Homes program is a support network for Bedford parents with children in grades 6-12 who are concerned about alcohol and drug use at preteen and teen parties and gatherings. Through Safe Homes, we are encouraging parents of Bedford middle and high school students to make a pledge that they will provide a safe environment for youth when they have parties or gatherings in their homes – safe from alcohol, drugs, firearms, and other hazardous items. Underage drinking is harmful to kids. Love them enough to say no.
Safe Homes brochures were included in middle and high school mailings in mid-summer.
This is a reminder that you can complete the form on the back of that brochure, or you can sign up online via our website www.bedfordma.gov/youth by clicking on “Safe Homes” under the Homepage menu options. Participating families will receive a directory booklet in November containing contact information of others who have joined Safe Homes. Let’s join together to keep all our youth healthy and safe.
Pledges Due on September 30th
