The mission of Hingham CARES is to reduce substance misuse among the youth in Hingham. This is accomplished by fostering a strong and inclusive community that promotes healthy lifestyle choices and making informed and responsible decisions about drug and alcohol use.
Programming is planned around evidence-based practices and is informed by data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey implemented at the middle school and high school as well as Massachusetts Department of Public Health statistics.
Hingham CARES is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. All tax-deductible donations are used to provide programming to the community.
