VA Mini Academy one pager AND SOR newsletter issue 2
Greetings SOR Prevention grantees!

It was great seeing many of you last month at the VACSB Prevention Council meeting. The attached pdf includes two items I mentioned:

  • “One-pagers” created by the 15 CSBs/coalitions that attended the 2019 CADCA Virginia Mini-Academy. We loved the variation; some are attention-grabbing recruitment tools and others are matter of fact summaries of the coalitions’ talking points. We are sharing for your interest and inspiration!
  • SOR Newsletter issue 2—you should be on the distribution list but if you aren’t, please let me know. Also, if you would like to highlight SOR Prevention activities going on in your CSB/coalition, you can submit directly to (SOR Recovery Coordinator) and cc me. Or, if you’re short on time and would like help writing something up, I’m eager and available to assist you!

As a heads up, later this month you will receive detailed instructions on the SOR Prevention Mid-Year Report. The report will cover October 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020 and will be due in March. Besides your accomplishments and challenges, we will also request an attachment with your SOR expenditure information. OMNI and I are working together on this–details coming soon.

Please reach out if you have any questions, comments, jokes.. 🙂 Thanks for all that you are doing!

Much appreciated,
