Keeping kids safe is what it is all about. This site offers factual, research-based information to help parents and teachers make it less likely that youth will turn to alcohol and other drugs for recreation or solutions to their problems.
You may remember the story that was portrayed in a Lifetime movie about Katy McIntosh and her husband, Bond of Silence.
After Bob's murder on New Year's Eve 1997 Katy waited for five years while the police worked tirelessly to obtain the evidence to prosecute and convict his killers. During that period, Katy developed her perception of the societal forces and lack of understanding amongst young people that created the circumstances leading to Bob's death. She grew to recognize the need to advise and educate young members of the community about the risks that arise with the combination of young people, alcohol, and a lack of supervision.
Part of her ongoing work is a website that she keeps current and that provides a number of resources. You can find her site here and the resources page here.
