Eden Prairie High School
I think that it is very educational and makes everyone aware of things going on in the community. It helped me better understand the severity of substance misuse. All of you were really well spoken and had way more impact coming from you than a teacher.
Bemidji Middle School
Having honest conversations with youth about what’s happening in their communities with regard to drugs is crucial. It helps them understand misconceptions related to drug use.
Change the Outcome’s program has proven to be effective at reaching youth and positively influencing their decisions about substance use.

Meet Our Founder
In an effort to make something good come from my heartache I began volunteering on different efforts surrounding the opioid epidemic after we lost Luke. I became a board member with the Steve Rummler Hope Network after volunteering there for several months, I’ve worked with several community coalitions in the twin cities and northern Minnesota, and participated in Hennepin County’s NoOverdose Campaign to assist in educating communities about current drug dangers, trends and prevention through town hall meetings. My work on these different areas made me realize that my heart is with the kids—I need to try to reach kids! So much of the work being done is focused on reacting to this national health crisis. I believe we can save a lot of lives through efforts aimed at prevention. Information is power, and if young people have the facts they can be aware of the problem and make their decisions accordingly.
