present day

In the mid 1980's when the nation was using lot's of crack, and cocaine, we started an organization committed to drug prevention. Over the past 28 years our message is the same, but more powerful. We have had great success, and have played a major role in getting our nations children to stay away from drugs, and help those who have had problems with addiction. We have launched many programs throughout the years, and have created better, improved, healthier communities in The United States.
