Competitors for the Narrowsburg School speak


The program does not seek taxpayer support. The costs of our clients’ treatment is paid by insurance or self-pay, Changes will be offering limited scholarships to our neighbors in Sullivan County for those who qualify and can’t afford treatment.
We believe this is a win-win situation for all: lives will be saved, taxes will be paid, jobs will be created and local vendors will be supported. We look forward to becoming part of the community and working with other organizations to help decrease the substance abuse issues in the county. Please help us make people who feel lost, find themselves again. Anybody can quit drugs, but they must be taught how to stay off drugs, feel whole again, regain their self-confidence and respect, so they can live a productive life.

Brendan and Kathy Weiden, Statement to the Press (6/16/14)

We continue in the advancement of our plan to develop the Narrowsburg School building as a multi-use facility to support education, arts, agriculture and food, municipal needs, fitness and wellness, recreation and tourism, with venue space for special events, private and public, and office space. We introduced ourselves to the Sullivan West School Board at their regular meeting on Thursday, June 12 and described our vision to the board. Although the board did not have any questions for us at the meeting, there were approximately 40 citizens from Narrowsburg present in support of our plan. Several citizens spoke publicly about their support for our plan. There were no public statements in opposition to our plan, nor were any made in favor of any other proposal or plan.
