A multi-faceted approach to prevention

DAABHS receives federal funding for six major prevention programs that address different populations. We subcontract with large partners—such as MidSOUTH, the training arm of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Social Work, and the Reynolds Institute of Aging at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences—to manage programs and coordinate partnerships with other organizations throughout the state.
