On August 25 - Kids Escaping Drugs will honor the legacy of one of the organization's founders - Dick Gallagher with the dedication of the campus' sports park and pavilion. KED looks forward to bringing together current and former students to honor Dick's legacy of wellness and recovery.
August 31 was International Overdose Awareness Day. This day concludes KED's 30 Days of Remembrance campaign that told the stories of individuals who have lost their lives to drug addiction. The goal of this campaign was to not only tell the story of who these individuals were beyond their addiction, but to inform the public that overdose deaths are preventable.
We at Kids Escaping Drugs Inc. much like addiction, do not discriminate against race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status. We are committed to equal employment opportunities.
Stay up to date on events happening right here in our community that support outreach, educational programming, and the Renaissance Campus Facility.
We proudly partner with schools and communities to provide no-cost proactive outreach and education through our Face2Face Program.
