About Us

The mission of the Newtown Parent Connection is to educate and empower our community in the prevention of substance abuse and to embrace families in crisis.

We believe that knowledge is power, and by becoming better informed, we can begin to take the steps necessary to prevent or treat the problem. This is an issue that affects all aspects of our community, and your involvement will make a positive difference.

Our goal is to continue to work in conjunction with town agencies, the police department, the schools, and religious communities to enlighten our community in order to prevent the use of drugs and alcohol among our youth.

Newtown is committed to addressing the problem of substance abuse directly, and the Newtown Parent Connection is dedicated to helping increase awareness through education.
