We are a coalition that supports a sustainable alcohol and drug-free culture for youth in Dubois County.
What We Do
Supported by the Drug Free Communities Support Program Grant we:
We educate the community on the effects of youth substance use. and the detriment of providing alcohol to minors.
We provide skills-building information and training for parents/caregivers to speak with their children about substance use.
We collaborate with, and provide support to, partner agencies to empower youth and build resiliency skills.
We work with local lawmakers to create and sustain a community that does not tolerate underage alcohol and drug use.
Dubois County CARES is a group of caring individuals focused on supporting youth and creating a family-centered culture in our community. We believe alcohol and drugs are a hidden issue in our community and want to empower our youth to be alcohol and drug free. We have recently been awarded a federal Drug Free Communities grant.
TRI-CAP is our Fiscal Agent and community support organization. All official offices are located at the Jasper location. This grant would not be possible without TRI-CAP.
