Welcome to The Jim Utley Foundation, dedicated to helping kids live DRUG FREE
One of JUF's goals is to reach kids at a younger age than ever before, hoping that parents realize the value of discussions about the dangers of drugs with children of all ages. The simple, “don’t do drugs,” talks of the past no longer work. Kids who are armed with facts and have regular discussions with parents about the dangers of drugs are 42% less likely to try street drugs.
In addition, we now address the topics of prescription drug and alcohol use and abuse. Our organization participates in the prescription drug take back programs around North Texas in order to keep unused and expired medications out of the hands of our youth by proper collection and disposing.
Partnering with parents, educators, and community, The Jim Utley Foundation helps families and youthnavigate some of today's complex issues through education and programs at public and private speaking engagements. We also reach out to parents, educators and youth through healthy activities, youth meetings and fundraisers.
