The Stand Project has passionate members
from a variety of roles in our community –
both personal and professional.

Some of are concerned for our children and/or grandchildren. Some of us see the damage of substance abuse up close in our jobs at school,
at the police station, the local hospital, and city and state government. Some of us are living with a family member who has a substance
abuse problem. And sadly, some of us have lost someone to substance abuse and live forever with a hole in our heart. We all
come from different experiences but share a common passion – the youth who live and learn in our community.
