  • Our Location

    The Hempfield Area School District former Bovard Elementary School in the Bovard-Greensburg area is the new home for the Saint Vincent College Prevention Projects. With few modifications, the original classrooms now house offices of the program’s 21 staff members, as well as providing areas for the materials and resources used in the Prevention Projects’ services. The relocation to the school provides greater visibility county-wide for the Prevention Projects. The Prevention Projects began serving local schools and communities in 1978 and currently provides programming throughout Westmoreland County and training opportunities for the Southwest and South Central regions of PA.

    The mailing address for the Prevention Projects remains 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe, PA 15650.
