Our Mission

We need your help today!  By supporting our Busey Bank Run for Prevention, you will support the coalition prevention initiatives planned for 2015.  The Busey Bank Run for Prevention is planned for October 11 at Lakes Park in Fort Myers.  Sponsorship information is available by calling (239) 931-9317.  Don't miss this opportunity to support families in Lee County!

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.

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.


 Join us in thanking these community sponsors for putting their support of prevention into action!
