Mission


The TRUST (To  Reach  Ultimate Success Together) Program is a comprehensive student assistance program designed to provide prevention, intervention, referral, and follow-up services to students and their families who may be experiencing mental health issues, substance abuse and other self-defeating behaviors.

The TRUST Specialists assist students with behavior, mental health and social issues that directly impact learning and development. The TRUST Program focuses on interpersonal relationships, social-emotional skills, schools safety and substance abuse. These issues interfere with the individual student’s success and well-being, as well as, directly impact the school environment and climate.

The TRUST Program is effective in minimizing student risk factors and promoting protective factors for all students. The TRUST Specialist works with community agencies as well as collaborates with school business partners, parent groups and police departments. This kind of network encourages a community-school cooperation that helps to create a safe and drug-free environment.
