Steve received our "WHEN you go above & beyond" recognition for initiating, researching, and preparing our community survey! Steve utilized several resources and coordinated with other critical volunteers on this project. Data collected will assist WHEN with identifying where to focus our efforts in 2021, help us understand the impact of the pandemic on underage substance misuse in Webster, and gain insight into adult perceptions of risk to Webster youth.
