Survey

Please take a moment to take our brief, anonymous 10-question survey. The SAFE Glen Cove Coalition created the survey to determine whether or not residents of Glen Cove would like mental health and substance abuse counseling services in the City, especially for youth between the ages of 5-17. The survey will be used as a means to apply for funding for these services. Thank you for taking the time to participate!
