Drug Free Communities Grant Program

The Winston Area Community Partnership had the privilege of administering the Federal Drug-Free Communities Grant Program for 10 years with funding through December, 2013. We are very excited with the direction our program has headed the past several years. The Winston Community Teen Center opened in Spring 2008. WACP collaborates with the local community and the Winston-Dillard School District to not only provide a safe & supervised after school environment for youth, but we are striving to offer structured enrichment activities to support academic/social achievement.

Also continuing after the drug-free communities grant funds ended, is the WACP-initiated, highly successful Prescription Drug Take-Back Program in partnership with the Winston Police Department. Citizens drop off unused medications at the police department, alleviating the chances of these medications getting into the wrong hands or contaminating our ground water through other means of disposal. If you are interested in getting involved in our efforts to reduce drug use in the Winston area, please call WACP at (541) 580-7336.
