WELCOME TO THE CAPE FEAR COALITION
The Cape Fear Coalition For a Drug-Free Tomorrow came together in May of 2008 as a result of the US Surgeon General's call to action for addressing underage alcohol use. The Coalition is comprised of community based organizations, businesses, schools, youth, and family members. The goal of the initiative is to reduce alcohol and substance abuse by youth in New Hanover County, NC. The Coalition welcomes anyone who is concerned about this issue and openly invites you to join us in the initiative to prevent underage alcohol use and substance abuse.
The mission of the Coalition is to support the community in its commitment to change attitudes, encourage action, and mobilize stakeholders around the issues of underage drinking, impaired driving, and substance abuse. As a community, we will achieve this through education, advocacy, and policy change.
