The Mayes County HOPE Coalition was awarded the Drug-Free Communities grant in September 2015 and as a result the HOPE4YOUTH initiative began. The primary focus of HOPE4YOUTH is youth substance abuse prevention with four main areas of concern: Underage Alcohol Use, Tobacco, Marijuana Use, and Prescription Medication Abuse.
The HOPE4YOUTH Program, also hopes to strengthen collaboration among all related organizations to support the effort of prevention and reduce substance use among the youth in our community.
