July 29, 2021- for immediate release- Phelps County Child Advocacy Network (PCCAN) is looking for community members eager to make a difference to join their Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Task Force. The Task Force, formed in 2019, is an initiative of a federal grant received by PCCAN to prevent and reduce the impact of youth substance use.

Each member of the Task Force is dedicated to promoting healthy and drug-free lifestyles for youth in Phelps County. Current members include public school representatives, local law enforcement, medical professionals, parents, youth, and more. The Task Force implements a variety of prevention initiatives, such as hosting town hall meetings, distributing educational pieces to parents, and building a drug-free youth coalition.

An ideal recruit of the Task Force is a Phelps County citizen dedicated to making a difference in the community. The Task Force provides an avenue to apply this enthusiasm toward an evidence-based process of building protective factors and reducing risk factors to prevent youth substance use, as well as the many negative consequences associated with youth use. 
The Drug-Free Communities Task Force meets the 2nd Tuesday each month. If you are interested in joining the Task Force please contact Anita Carroll at [email protected] or learn more at pccan.org.
