Dearborn County Citizens will be empowered to make safe and healthy choices, free from the harms of alcohol and other drugs.
To develop and support a comprehensive community plan focused on the prevention and reduction of substance use/misuse/addiction among youth and adults in Dearborn County by driving impactful advocacy efforts.
CASA has been active coalition fighting substance use and abuse in our community since 1989; growing from 8 members to around 40, attending our meetings on a regular basis. The different sectors in our membership include: parents, interested citizens, law enforcement, government and justice, business, media, education, faith-based, youth, and healthcare workers.
Together, we can work to combat these issues as a community. Spreading knowledge, education, and awareness are essential to providing the citizens in our county, young and old, with a safe and healthy place to live.
The City of Lawrenceburg has funded our community coalition since 2011. Without their support and dedication to substance use prevention, our work would not be possible.
We also receive in-kind media support from Eagle Country Radio and advertisement support from Friendship Bank.
