Who We Are
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 high school and Massachusetts Department of Public Health statistics.
Hingham CARES is a non-profit run entirely by volunteers. All tax-deductible donations are used to provide programming to the community.
