We are one of the hundreds of coalitions across the country working to prevent youth substance use in our communities. Ray County Coalition is made up of people from all areas of our community: from educators to parents, from law enforcement to government, officials, pastors, business owners and more.. our volunteers work together to help Ray County youth thrive.
