For over eight years, JFCS has been committed to educating thousands of tweens, teens, and families about the epidemic of addiction in our South Jersey community. Originally focused on opiate and heroin addiction, we recently refreshed our program to incorporate all substances that impact young people, including alcohol, vapes, nicotine, marijuana, opiates, and heroin. The refreshed program, entitled One Step at a Time, incorporates interactive software so that participants can actively engage with the presenters. Voices representing expertise, impact, and law enforcement remain integral to the program, as we share warning signs, and offer safe and accessible ways to seek guidance and help.
The pandemic initially halted our in-person presentations, but not our mission to provide meaningful prevention awareness. We are currently offering both in-person and virtual program options. Ultimately, we believe One Step at a Time saves lives by increasing awareness, promoting conversation, and normalizing the need to “ask for help.”

One Step at a Time is sponsored by Gregg B. Wolfe, in loving memory of son Justin Wolfe,
and the Camden County Board of Commissioners.
