Strategic Prevention gets Media Coverage in Homer

May 21st, 2012 | Posted by karen in Uncategorized

For those of you wondering how to get the word out in your community about the Strategic Prevention Framework and your prevention efforts, a great example comes to us from the Homer Prevention Project. Some of the news coverage the coalition has received came about because of the project staff’s initiative in sending out press releases, while others, according to project director Esther Hammerschlag, were “spontaneous ones that I did not spur with press releases.” It pays to have staff and coalition members who can help get the word out! If you would like to see examples of what media coverage can look like, here are a few links to local news stories about the State Incentive Grant project in Homer:

Luckily, Homer has two local newspapers. Your community may have newspapers, radio and even local television stations, or it may have none of these things. How have you used local media (or other methods) to spread the word about your prevention project?
