featured member statement of the month
(Hilda Lando, Steuben County Legislator)
As a wife, mom, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend I have seen what addiction can do to families. As a County Legislator I have tried to learn more about addiction so that I can help solve the problems we are having in our county. I joined the Steuben Prevention Coalition because I believe prevention can be one part of the solution when we all work together. We may not be able to stop the supply but we can help stop the demand. Our youth is our future so we need to do whatever we can to keep them safe and healthy. As it's been said before - it takes a village - it takes Legislators, Mental Health, Social Services, Law Enforcement, Parents, Schools etc. to work on this problem - our children's future depends on it!
