Moving through Adversity with the Support of Community
As a primary prevention coalition, MATFORCE's focus is to prevent youth from ever starting to use harmful substances. Monumental events over the last year have made that mission even more challenging. Yet, we continue to move forward through the adversity with the help of our amazing volunteers, prevention partners, and staff.
What is MATFORCE doing about these issues? The same thing we have done since we started in 2005, with an established volunteer base, MATFORCE rallies the community to action. To bring a community to the point that it is ready and willing to change is a multi-step process. That first, most important step is raising awareness.
MATFORCE strives to raise awareness about substance abuse issues and offers resources to help educate communities. It is at the core of what we have always done and will continue to do no matter what monumental events challenge us.
