Task force earns grant



February 22, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Not quite two years old, the Allen County Substance Abuse Task Force has earned yet another grant intended to further its goal of reducing substance abuse among the county’s young people.

The roughly $23,000 grant — awarded by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services — will provide the coalition with the resources to continue to support county-wide programs that combat substance abuse, especially underage drinking, both in the schools and in the community at large. 

“The whole mission of the task force,” reflected Sheriff Bryan Murphy, the group’s chairman, “is to be proactive, and to put in place preventative measures so that we don’t have to deal with the effects of substance abuse after the fact.”
