Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida

 

HISTORY

Since it’s founding in 1989 by Jim Nathan, Sheriff Mike Scott and a group of local leaders, the Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida has worked to provide prevention resources to families in Lee County. Prevention events include Drug House Odyssey, Red Ribbon Week Celebrations, Town Hall Meetings and Lunch and Learn Educational Events.

Our Mission is to “reduce substance abuse in Lee County by raising awareness of prevention resources through collaboration, education and inspiration.”
