On Episode 68 of No Rain Date, we’re joined by Lisa Wolff, Manager of Community Engagement for the Center for Humanistic Change. Founded in 1979 and jointly funded by Lehigh and Northampton counties, CHC is dedicated to preventing drug and alcohol abuse via programming that educates and engages local residents from diverse backgrounds. As Lisa explains, young people are particularly at risk from drugs and alcohol, which is why many of the organization’s efforts are youth-targeted and mentorship-based. Building resiliency and coping skills is a focus for programming designed for younger children, while HOPE–Heroin & Opioid Prevention Education–is designed to help high school students and adults. CHC not only works with local schools, churches, Scouts and other groups, but also offers presentations that are specifically geared for businesses. Lisa also explains how the organization has adapted to continue serving vulnerable individuals during the COVID pandemic.

As always, Josh has highlights from the week that was in local news, including an important update on the Saucon Valley School District’s updated health and safety plan.
