SPOTLIGHT ON COMMUNITY PARTNERS:
HEARTS for Families: Millen, Swainsboro, and Sylvania
HEARTS for Families, Inc. is dedicated to the prevention of underage drinking through the Implementation of strategies specific to communities throughout the state of Georgia.
HEARTS Millen, Swainsboro, and Sylvania has three strategies. There are two environmental strategies, Be the Wall and Promoting Social Host Liability, and one individual level strategy, All Stars Core Program, Millen and Swainsboro. Be the Wall is a positive community norms campaign where adults and youth pledge to Be the Wall between youth and alcohol. Promoting Social Host Liability is designed to pass ordinances where adults are held accountable for allowing underage drinking on their property. All Stars is a program for youth ages 11-14 where they learn decision making skills and strengthen bonds with peers and parents/caring adults. There are currently two programs in Millen, Swainsboro, and Sylvania – Jenkins Middle After School Program in Millen and One Unity Mentoring Program in Swainsboro.
There are two STEP Up Workgroups in Millen, Swainsboro, and Sylvania – STEP Up Millen/Sylvania and STEP Up Swainsboro. Workgroups meet the second Thursday of each month:
