The Devastating Effects Drug Overdoses are Having on the Children in our Community

WINK News aired a story this week that showed the devastating effects drug overdoses are having on the children in our community. Please watch this video and share with your friends and those you know. For anyone who has ever thought about trying drugs, please think about the impact your death could have on your children.
 
Valerie’s House is seeing an increasing number of children coming for help in their grief, as they wonder why their mother or father or sister or brother had to leave them so early in life. Many of the people who lost their life were trying opioids for the first time.
 
Thank you to local law enforcement and others in the community helping battle this epidemic. Valerie’s House will continue to be here to help our children. “We only wish these families didn’t have to grieve a life gone too soon,” said Valerie’s House founder Angela Melvin.
 
If you or someone you know needs help in their grief, please reach out to Valerie’s House.
