Family Connection receives Substance Abuse Grant

Posted on by

Union County Commissioner’s Office offers an annual grant with funding from the sales of alcohol license fees and tax receipts to address the problem of substance abuse and its effects on individuals and families in Union County.  Again, this year Union County Family Connection will use the funds to disseminate information about the true percentage of students who drink, to help change the perception that “all youth drink alcohol” through a wide range of methods including print and electronic media. These include published reports, newspaper articles, billboards, social media, posters, brochures, websites, focus groups, etc. The collaborative will also continue to research other methods to effectively educate our community.
