Kearney-Holt CAN Community Acting Now
Kearney-Holt CAN is a coalition of passionate volunteers working to prevent youth substance use and suicide in the Kearney and Holt communities. Prevention work is about reaching youth long before they are tempted to engage in behaviors that could harm their body, brain, and future.
Using evidence-based approaches and community expertise, we help nurture resilient youth and a safe, supportive community environment. Using approaches like building awareness, education, policy change, and environmental change, we help reduce risk factors and build protective factors like healthy coping skills and connections with trusted adults.
