Boys & Girls Club of Westminster
The Boys & Girls Club of Westminster received a grant from the state Opioid Operational Command Center to address the opioid and substance use crisis.
“What we are hoping to accomplish is to make
sure we reach young people before they possibly start
experimenting with drugs or alcohol,”
Lt. Governor Rutherford
The Westminster-based program from Boys &
Girls Club, dubbed SMART Moves, serves children at-risk
and acts as a preventative measure for opioid and
other substances abuse. With the grant they will be able to have a professional social worker on site, and continue to do trauma training for the staff. The grant will also enable them to increase their community outreach.
