Back in 1999, when The Funhouse was first imagined, things were lookin’ pretty bad for kids on Orcas. Since then, things have gotten better and better every single year: Drug use is down, tobacco use is down, crime use is down. Here’s a report we put together every couple years based on the most recent data available. To download a PDF copy click: Community Impact Report.
