The Coalition is a group of concerned citizens and parents intent on keeping the youth of our community drug free. The organization was established in 1988 by the superintendents of the six school districts in Angelina County who saw drugs as a problem and wanted a county-wide prevention program. The board includes law enforcement, local county government, businesses, community leaders, parents and youth. As part of The Coalition’s grant funding, our focus is centered on creating environmental changes in our community rather than individual changes in each community member. With this broader focus we can make lasting changes that will affect the larger population as well as future generations.
