INNER CITY ALCOHOL AND DRUG PREVENTION COMMISSION
There are four basic components of the project.
1. Educational outreach to schools.
2. 24-hour hotline.
3. 24-7 crisis team.
4. Performance art to dramatize anti-substance abuse message.
Regarding component one, educational outreach to schools, the ATOD Commission and school district will continue to partner for continuation after the grant funding has terminated. Funding for continuation will come from ATOD Commission outreach budget and from a combination of Title I funding for some materials, from continuation funding through juvenile drug court and through the River City Education Foundation.
The 24-hour hotline will continue by virtue of a coalition of businesses and industries who know the importance of the hotline to both crime prevention and the quality of living of community citizens. Staffing will be handled through an advisory board with ATOD, court, business, and industry representatives.
The 24-7 crisis team is the most expensive of the components. The continuation plan for this component is to fund it with a combination of mental health agency funds, River City Hospital funds, private insurance, medicare, and medicaid. Additionally, the Fraternal Order of Police, Kiwanis, Civitan and the local Shrine Club will hold fundraisers to support the crisis team. It is viewed as a key component for community well-being.
Performance art will charge other counties, schools, and community groups to support its efforts. It will become a regional and statewide touring group after the term of the grant has ended.
