Drug Free Communities Coalition

The Malheur County Drug Free Communities Coalition (DFC) is dedicated to “Preventing and reducing substance misuse among youth, families, and community members in Malheur County (mission statement).” We provide good physical, mental and emotional well being in Malheur County by being aware of the problems caused by substance misuse, by sharing information and resources, and by offering other healthy activities.

The DFC Coalition addresses issues related to substance misuse and recovery through advocacy, events, and education. Reduction of substance use as well as promotion of good physical and mental health is imperative to creating a safe, healthy, and productive community. Sponsorship of events such as Hands Around the Park for Recovery, Chalk Art Challenge, Don’t Give Up sign rallies, Red Ribbon Week, Town Hall gatherings, MORP, Senior parties, Designated Driver booths, and special community events all help to promote and create a healthier environment for the citizens of Malheur County.

Any person interested in supporting the mission of the DFC Coalition is welcome and encouraged to join. Meetings are held the third Tuesday monthly from 9:00am – 10:30am. Contact Malheur County Prevention (dfc@lifeways.org) for more details.
