The Washington County Heartland Youth Coalition met last Friday during a luncheon that was open to the public.
The WCHYC is a group that was formed in 1998 to help make the community aware of the dangers of substance abuse. Since that time, they have been putting together programs to help educate the county’s parents and youth.
In 2003, the WCHYC received the Drug-Free Communities grant that awarded them $125,000. This grant allowed the coalition to pay for, among other things, two staff members (Wilma Sorrell and Issac Frye).
