Since the inception of the Dallas Pugh Foundation, we have dedicated over a million dollars to support suicide awareness and prevention programs, including underwriting the construction of the Dallas Pugh Gymnasium at the McGrath Family YMCA in East County.
Project D.A.L.L.A.S. 180
D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 is breaking new ground as the first program of its kind. This program will reach high school students with specialized tools designed to identify those at-risk and guide them and their families through a supportive healing process.
Innovation for Prevention
This program is being piloted in San Diego, CA in partnership with San Diego Youth Services and the San Diego Center for Children. After it's pilot launch, D.A.L.L.A.S. 180 will be duplicable in educational settings throughout the United States and the world.
We create innovative programs that support the mental health and well-being of youth and their families.
