What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Main Prevention

At the grade school level, Shalom services are primarily preventative in nature. Shalom utilizes science-based curricula that have received the designation of Model Program by SAMHSA and the U.S. Department of Education to stage a series of ongoing, sequential classroom presentations. More than 80 grade schools received services during the 2005-06 school year.

At the high school level, an array of prevention, intervention and aftercare services are available. In the 2005-06 school year, eleven high schools received prevention/intervention services. A majority of the high schools we serve receive Shalom prevention/intervention services five days a week.

The AIM Program works with high school students around developing skills for healthy relationships, pregnancy and parenting. The AIM Specialists provide prevention activities such as large group and classroom presentations focusing on topics such as peer pressure, abstinence and relationship issues. These prevention presentations raise important issues for students and provide them with clear messages about making good choices. They also serve to raise program visibility and decrease any stigma associated with participation in the AIM Program. Intervention services provided by the AIM Specialists are individual and small group services for high-risk, expectant and parenting students. The AIM Specialists also refer students to community services for a variety of needs. We are seeking funds for the AIM Program through this proposal.

Shalom?s D.U.I. program provides services to individuals convicted of driving under the influence. These clients are referred to Shalom by the court system for Court Reporting Network interviews, Alcohol Highway Safety School, court required Drug and Alcohol Assessments and treatment.

The Counseling Program completes Shalom?s continuum of services by adding outpatient treatment services to its array of prevention and intervention activities. Such a comprehensive service delivery is extremely valuable in accessing clients and in best providing for their needs. The school-based Specialists have a referral choice for those persons whose needs have gone beyond the scope of intervention, while at the same time, the Specialists, school administrators, and school staff are easily able to consult with the treatment professionals. This type of arrangement, relying heavily on the ?counselor-school-family? relationship, is capable of providing a continuity of care in all the systems affecting the individual. Sessions occur both in the school and in the central offices of Shalom. The Counseling Program is licensed as an outpatient drug-free clinic by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Health, Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Programs, and as an outpatient psychiatric clinic by the Office of Mental Health. The Program?s staff includes a psychologist, a psychiatrist, Certified Addictions Counselors, and professional therapists with advanced degrees and extensive experience. Clients are not discriminated against on the basis of race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, national origin, age, ethnicity, color, marital status or handicap.
