Dubois County Coalition for Adolescent Resilience and Empowerment Strategies or also known as “CARES” held their 2nd meeting last night at the Jasper Middle School auditorium.

The community meetings are an opportunity to learn more about alcohol and drug use among youth, how to talk to youth about issues with substance use, and ways you can help the coalition achieve its mission to empower youth to be alcohol and drug free.

CARES member Donna Oeding encourages the community to attend the conversations so that the CARES group can collect input and build from the conversations a better way to address the issue.

Parents, grandparents, community members and those who work with youth are encouraged to attend.

Oeding also provides insight on others in the community who have responded with interest to be part of the community movement to help the youth.

The next meetings will start at 7pm and will take place:

  • Monday, April 18th at the Southridge Middle School Auditorium
  • And Wednesday April 27th at the Tri-County YMCA in Ferdinand

Residents are invited to join in the conversation to learn more about ways they can help CARES in its mission and more importantly support a sustainable alcohol and drug free culture for Dubois County youth.
