Our Foundation

Advocates for Smart Teen Choices

Affiliates of Daviess Community Hospital

When you’re young, you’re options for healthcare and support resources are limited. Without money, it may seem like you’re stuck with whatever situation you find yourself in, whether you are dealing with addiction, depression, or abuse. There are community resources out there designed to help you!

At Advocates for Smart Teen Choices, our mission is to carry out the goals of a sustainable strategy that encourages teens to make wise decisions regarding health education and character through collaboration, education, and advocacy.

Vision Statement:

Advocates for Smart Teen Choices envisions a community working together to inspire and educate our teens to make smart life choices.
