Our Minnesota Winter Wonderland
can be fun and beautiful! But the snowy, icy roads that follow are certainly not! 
 
And despite that busy, well constructed family calendar full of driving kids to school, appointments, practices and other outings... there WILL be days when challenging weather
is bound to interfere.

With many teens as first time winter drivers... and many younger ones learning by watching parents from the backseat- now is a great time to teach - and model - safe winter driving!
 
We encourage you to utilize the resources below,
and remember, you never have to face the challenges
of raising teens alone.

Being Prepared Pays Off!
Local Support Creates Real Impact
Agency Spolight: YSB
United Way of Washington County-East
 
"We partner with local non-profit agencies such as Youth Service Bureau, an organization that helps youth and families learn the skills they need to be more successful at home, in school and throughout the community. With the help of our generous donors, we were able to grant $66,000 towards Youth Service Bureau's Early Intervention Program.

Sean is a young man who was referred to Youth Service Bureau's chemical health specialist after his school reported that his parents were chemically involved with illegal substances such as methamphetamine. The Early Intervention Program helped Sean with education on the disease of addiction, the importance of talking about the problem without feeling scared, and helped Sean to understand that he didn't cause his parents' use, that he cannot cure it or control it. Thanks to the consistent support provided by Youth Service Bureau's chemical health specialist, Sean's health and well-being have greatly improved.

Agencies like Youth Service Bureau help us at United Way of Washington County East complete our mission."
