Illuminating the Path Forward: Informed Families' Year of Impact

Posted by Informed Families on December 26, 2023 at 10:09 AM

As we culminate our 2022-2023 Year in Review, we at Informed Families are overjoyed to share some standout statistics that encapsulate the hard work and dedication of our team and community partners over the past year.



We've successfully reached an astounding 18,157 youths with our direct service presentations, outreach, and training programs. This figure is not just a number—it represents the young lives we've engaged with, imparting crucial knowledge and skills to navigate life's challenges drug-free.

Our impact extended to 13,426 adults, including parents, educators, and community leaders, through similar initiatives. By equipping adults with the tools and information needed, we've empowered them to be proactive in the lives of our youth, fostering environments conducive to healthy and positive development.

A significant marker of our community involvement is the 135 coalition meetings attended by our staff, where we've shared vital information, resources, and support. These meetings are the groundwork for our collaborative approach, reinforcing our message and strategies across various platforms and groups.

We are particularly proud of the 5 Red Ribbon Certified Schools we've recognized this year. These schools have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to maintaining drug-free zones and have been active participants in our Red Ribbon Week initiatives:

  • Brownsville Middle School (Miami-Dade County)
  • Citrus Grove Middle School (Miami-Dade County)
  • Piedmont Lakes Middle School (Orange County)
  • Rosemont Elementary School (Orange County)
  • Winegard Elementary School (Orange County)
Furthermore, our presence at 60 health fairs has allowed us to directly interact with individuals and families, sharing our mission and resources. Each health fair was an opportunity to connect, educate, and support our community on a personal level.

As we finalize this year's report, we cannot help but feel a sense of immense gratitude and motivation. The numbers reflect not just our reach, but the depth of our impact and the strength of our commitment. Looking ahead, we are invigorated to continue this vital work, knowing that each interaction, each partnership, and each program contributes to a larger vision—a future where every family is informed, and every child can thrive in a safe, healthy, and drug-free environment.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has been a part of this journey. Your support fuels our mission, and together, we are creating a legacy of health and wellness for generations to come. Here's to building on these accomplishments and to an even more successful year ahead!
