Thanks for Visiting the Cape Fear Coalition

The Cape Fear Coalition for A Drug-Free Community 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.
