GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The first Safety Kids Community Class in a three part series kicked off Tuesday night at the Canyon View Vineyard Church Chapel, educating teens and parents on the dangers of drugs.
The topic of this series is prescription drugs and heroin abuse. Deputy Chad Williams of the Mesa County Sheriff's Department is teaching the series. The first class discussed heroin abuse.
One mother of 5 attended the class, hoping to learn more information that will help her family and her work at a local middle school.
"Help my kids, I can help other people's children, be aware of what's out there and what they might be subjected to or what might be introduced to them," said Marlene Romero.
If you are interested in attending the next class in the series, it will be held on November 19th and the final class will be on December 17th. The times and locations are yet to be determined.
