The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Drug Free Community Support Initiative

We have received funding for the Drug Free Communities Support program in 2005.  With the help of our local school system we have sustained many of the prevention programs funded by the DFCS Initiative.

This funding allowed us to administer a common standardized annual community needs assessment  each year to determine our annual goals and long term strategic planning with input from the entire community.

We were also able to provide for ongoing capacity building activities and have an on-going education, awareness and outreach campaign about the collaborative and the work we are doing here in our local community.
