Coalition to hold meeting on Tuesday

November 12, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

Randolph County America's Promise Coalition will meet at Woodford Church in Elkins at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Everyone is welcome.

With a growing concern about the issue of substance abuse within Randolph County for some time, the group is interested in hearing from residents about the issue.

The meeting is designed to gain input from area residents about how they see substance abuse within their county and individual communities.

Members of the coalition will be gathering specific information about drug issues, why residents feel it is a problem within their community and county and will also be asking those in attendance for solutions to the problems they see.

Throughout the past several months, the coalition has been involved in many projects to assist in the fight against Randolph County substance abuse.

Some of these projects include the development of a drug task force, an anonymous tip line and the education of youth and adults about the dangers of substance abuse.

For more information about the coalition, you may contact the Randolph County Family Resource Network at 304-636-4454.

This is a project funded by a substance abuse prevention and treatment block grant from the Bureau of Behavioral Health and Health Facilities of W.Va.
