Our Roots

WHO WE ARE

Here at Kanawha Communities That Care, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2000, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to drug prevention, social services, and education services. Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs.

SADD

Students Against Destructive Decisions

SADD is a youth-based, peer-to-peer organization that promotes youth empowerment and uses peer influence to spread the message of positive decision-making. The SADD organization is comprised of thousands of Chapters that embrace a “no use” policy and help educate their peers about potentially destructive decisions regarding underage drinking, impaired driving, other drug use, bullying, and suicide.

GAMBLING PREVENTION

Helping The Community

The Problem Gamblers Help Network of West Virginia has declared that problem gambling can significantly affect the youth as they are much more likely to develop a gambling addiction than adults. With sports betting in full effect, problem gambling has become a proactive focus within West Virginia.
