The group plans on targeting Jr. High and High Schools and in service provider's offices, hospitals, theaters, etc. The RESPECT group is very small (4-5) and it takes time to get things accomplished. If anyone has any needs of the group please call or email and they will try to accommodate. Meetings are every 3rd Friday at the Silverdale Community Center, Coho Room.
