W7SDCC is doing something about youth alcohol and drug use in Ward 7!
Drugs and alcohol are a plague on the District of Columbia. They inflict particularly harsh and cruel damage on children and youth. The data are clear: too many young people in Ward 7 use drugs.
Young people across all areas of the city are affected, and Ward 7, with the largest number of children living in its neighborhoods, is no exception. That's where the Ward 7 Safe & Drug-Free Communities Coalition (W7SDCC, Coalition) comes in.
Concerned Ward 7 residents and business leaders, along with others from across the greater Washington region, have joined the Coalition to protect the hearts, minds, spirits, and futures of children and youth who live in Ward 7. We are committed to finding effective solutions for preventing and combating substance use and abuse in every corner of this community.
