The Washington County Safe Coalition is bringing a national program to Washington tonight. Chrystal Woller with Washington County Public Health says the Coalition was one of 37 recipients from across the country to receive a grant from the American Medical Association Foundation Healthy Lifestyles Grant.
This grant will allow the Safe Coalition to give a special presentation from Rachel’s Challenge. This program will be on the topic of anti‑bullying behaviors and encouraging respectful relationships with peers and adults.
It will take place at Hamakua Place tonight from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Out of the grants distributed, Washington County SAFE Coalition’s was the only one awarded in Iowa.
