The Drug-Free All Stars are a group of high school seniors throughout Angelina County that are hand selected to serve as role models for their community by living a tobacco, drug, and alcohol-free lifestyle. For their monthly meeting in December, the Drug-Free All Stars visited the Family Crisis Center. During their visit to the Family Crisis Center, the All Stars took a tour and learned about how the Family Crisis Center helps our community through prevention, education, and training community members. The students were also able to adopt two families through the Family Crisis Center and purchase items they wished for this Christmas.

Since 1988, The Coalition has focused on eliminating the use of harmful substances by affecting public policy, laws, attitudes and behaviors, all in an effort to foster healthy life-long choices for the local community.
