Our Work

We’re identifying key populations in Washington, assessing the unique risk and protective factors rural communities face, developing tools and supports, uncovering the greatest gaps in prevention/education resources and seeking to bridge these gaps. Together we’ll discover what works and what doesn’t with prevention in rural communities.
