WIN PRIZES BY TAKING A COMMUNITY SURVEY!
Dear Community Partner,
Please help us with our Annual Community Survey! This survey is given to see how our community attitudes are changing about substance misuse and underage drinking. The results give us a better understanding of the needs of our community and help determine our strategies and how we can work together to meet those needs and increase health and wellness in our beloved Washougal.
It only takes 10 minutes and will make a real difference in our community.
To complete your survey (available in English and Spanish), please use the links below:
