Our team will be organizing and presenting public awareness events throughout the year that will include prominent community speakers informing us of important programs and policies surrounding addiction, as well as hearing personal stories from a variety of those afflicted, family members, and individuals in recovery. We aspire to coordinate open forum discussions, present effective messages and programs, and build effective partnerships to tackle this very important cause.
NAEF Originator Jackson Rannells had a passion for music of all kinds. Because of this love and acknowledgement of the profound impact music and art can have, where and when appropriate, these universal languages will be incorporated into our projects to serve as the conduits for touching and motivating the souls and minds of those rallying for change within the addiction crisis landscape.

We had the 1st Session last night - topic “Prevention of Drug Addiction” 5 Phenomenal Speakers including our own Officer Vito Spadea, Captain Jack Bennett, Ret. of the Prosecutors Office; the Directors of Middle Earth, Prevention Resources and Empower Somerset.
In my experience this was the most informative Drug Awareness Program
I have ever attended.
Thanks to our wonderful Host Fr. Ron of St John’s Episcopal Church. Yes drugs are a subject we wish we didn’t need to know about or hear about but the truth of the matter is many of our lives have been touched by addiction. Our kids are dying in record numbers, and people my age. Come on out and meet some absolutely terrific and life changing people.
All welcome, no judgement, just come & listen.
