Greenville Family Partnership is a group effort between teachers, students, police officers, parents and other community members. The organization began in 1984 after the community banded together to prevent drug use among the local youth. The program consists of awareness programs and events, information dissemination, youth-specific efforts, community education and task forces along with other partnerships.
As part of the Greenville Family Partnership, the Prevention Resource Center offers a free-lending library of brochures, posters, books, videos displays and other useful materials which address substance abuse prevention. These materials are provided at no cost to teachers, parents and other adults in the community. The ultimate mission of the Greenville Family Partnership is to prevent children and youth from using tobacco, alcohol, drugs and other potentially harmful substances. This non-profit organization is committed to building healthy, drug free communities through education and partnerships with families and communities.
