Safe Homes

WHAT IS IT? SAFE HOMES is a program that empowers parents and guardians to create a community of like-minded people who have pledged to not allow underage alcohol and drug use in their homes and on their property.  There is also a second pledge to provide a secure storage place for firearms, matches, toxic chemicals, and to monitor computer use.
