If you have able hands, we want your help.  And so do communities in need. You can start by attending our meetings and finding out what we do on a more personal level. We would love to hear your ideas, too.

Recent Programs

We're continually working hard to improve communities throughout the county. If you're interested to see what we've been doing recently (especially if you want to help), check out our project list.

Mission & Vision

We have a simple, but robust mission: to educate people about drugs and alcohol. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including education, awareness, and outreach. We want to make a difference.
