Renz Center’s various prevention programs work to decrease risk factors and increase protective measures in the community. Prevention provides information, education, and alternatives to help create healthy choices free of alcohol and drugs.
Staff consult with schools, businesses, and other organizations to improve the general health of the community and the quality of life.
In addition to alcohol and drug prevention, the program also advocates and promotes delinquency prevention, HIV education, and outreach services.
Renz Prevention Program empowers children and adolescents through education to make good choices, choices that keep them alive and safe. Renz Center also works with parents and collaborates with local community organizations to help keep our communities healthier and safer for all residents.
