NIAGARA FALLS – Project Runway, a new program to provide a pathway for drug- and alcohol-free living for young women, will introduce its strategic plan to the public at 4 p.m. next Thursday ► 26th ◄ in the Beloved Community Event Center, 1710 Calumet Ave.

The plan incorporates suggestions made by community residents, youth group leaders and teenagers during a series of meetings held this summer. It will offer concrete ways to confront substance abuse among women in the Niagara Falls community.

Funded by the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation, Project Runway aims to increase community awareness of drug issues and to train doctors and other health care professionals to treat those who use alcohol and drugs.
