Our Mission

Be a Part of the Conversation addresses substance use, misuse and addiction and its impact on individuals and their families by building a culture of awareness and support.

Our Vision

We hope to see everyone equipped with the skills and resources to avoid substance use, misuse or addiction. If such use becomes a reality and a challenge, or if the disease of addiction has been diagnosed, those individuals will be supported and assisted by a community that is educated and able to take timely and positive action toward healing and lifelong recovery.

Our Core Values

Accountability – Acknowledging and assuming responsibility for our actions, attitudes, and practices – as individuals and as an organization as a whole.
Inclusion – Creating a culture of acceptance, free of stigma or bias, where all can feel free to share their experiences and concerns.
Community – Contributing to society and demonstrating corporate social responsibility.
Innovation – Pursuing new and creative ideas that have the potential to change lives for the better.
Hopefulness – Finding hope when faced with feelings of despair, with the knowledge that we are working toward positive outcomes.
Self-Awareness – Remaining mindful of our own well-being, in order to maintain a healthy attitude as we serve communities and individuals who depend on our stability.
Graciousness – Providing a welcoming and safe environment for participants, fostering a positive experience.

 

Our History

10 2011 CONVERSATION_041Be a Part of the Conversation was created in the spring of 2011 in the Hatboro-Horsham School District with the support of community members and area professionals. In an effort to raise awareness about the effects of alcohol and other drug use, school and community leaders came together to form a new initiative. Families, educators, students, treatment professionals, clergy, and members of law enforcement and the business community would all have a voice, with the shared goal of raising awareness and understanding about substance use, misuse and addiction.
Recognizing the potential to expand this initiative into other communities, Hatboro-Horsham School District administrators transferred the intellectual property known as Be a Part of the Conversation to our current organization in August of 2014. Be a Part of the Conversation was granted its Articles of Incorporation with the State of Pennsylvania on June 11, 2014. Today, we are recognized as a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization by the United States Internal Revenue Service.
