Lawrence County Coalition

Helping to Keep Youth Safe

Thanks for visiting the Lawrence County Coalition website. This organization is comprised of a group of community representatives for many areas – business owners, public service providers, educators, parents and more – all committed to keeping our youth safe and free from substance use. Whether it be tobacco/nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, opioids or other drugs, the coalition brings folks together to promote prevention and positive perceptions.

Drug-Free Communities and other grant funding enables the coalition to work on creating partnerships and influencing policy while building capacity on the community level. The ultimate goal is to provide a safe, healthy community for our children to grow, learn and lead in the future. If you would like to get involved with the Lawrence County Coalition, use the Contact form to reach out.
