Since it's founding in 1989 by Jim Nathan, Sheriff Mike Scott and a group of local leaders, the Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida has worked to provide prevention resources to families in Lee County. Prevention events include Drug House Odyssey, Red Ribbon Week Celebrations, Town Hall Meetings and Lunch and Learn Educational Events.

The Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida provides a number of educational events throughout the year.  Join us for a Town Hall Meeting or free Lunch and Learn and Coalition Meeting.  We also invite you to join us as a volunteer at Drug House Odyssey, where you can impact the lives of over 2,000 fifth graders over the course of three days.
