Promise Neighborhoods Drug Free Coalition
Promise Neighborhoods DFC is a coalition of concerned community members seeking to eliminate the abuse of alcohol and synthetic marijuana by teens in the District Heights/Forestville/Oxon Hill area. The coalition sponsors community events that educate all about the harms of these abuses and the consequences to the the community. Started in 2014, Promise Neighborhoods DFC has brought together experts to come up with solid solutions to alleviate the problems with teen alcohol and synthetic marijuana abuse. The leaders of the coalition have been trained by some of the best minds in coalition building and sustainability. In the future, Promise Neighborhoods DFC seeks to continue its work in its community, but also assist and garner assistance from other coalitions that are doing similar work throughout the nation.
