A new program aimed at giving hope to young people in Pike County is now thriving, thanks in large part to a group of brave Waverly High School students who met with Ohio Governor John R. Kasich in November 2017.
The students shared their struggles living in the home with a drug-addicted family member, and, in response, the Kasich Administration worked to develop a pilot program in Pike County to provide enhanced community support not only for these young people but others facing similar circumstances.
On Tuesday, Kasich, along with program organizers and participants, met at the Pike County YMCA to celebrate the new program, Hurt to Hope.
