The group plans to soon start holding monthly meetings. “We’ll be able to offer services to children that are in drug-structured homes.Sometimes they might be involved in a bust. And the police officers, they do what they’re supposed to do, and it kind of just goes down the line. And we’re wanting to make sure that these children are getting the care that they need after something like this happens,” said Kays.

The group will soon start holding monthly meetings. “In October, we will begin the training. As of right now, we’re planning to bring three trainings in. One will be specifically for the community that wants to volunteer for the program. And then we are also going to bring in two separate ones that will include training for the law enforcement and also for the social services side of it.

The Coalition is also working to obtain a building for their operations, which will be used in conjunction with Mothers Against Methamphetamine.
