The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County, funded by a grant from TxDOT, are a group of high school seniors that serve as role models for the community by living an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free life. For their December monthly meeting, the Drug-Free All Stars visited the Family Crisis Center of East Texas. During their visit, the All Stars toured the offices and safehouses and learned how the Family Crisis Center helps the community through prevention, education, and training community members about relationships, partner/family violence, and assault. The students also adopted two families through the Family Crisis Center and fulfilled their wish lists for this holiday season. Special thank you to Stuart Burson, Prevention Coordinator, for hosting the Drug-Free All Stars and Angela Turner, Marketing and Communications Coordinator, for coordinating the Adopt a Family Campaign.

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.
