Changes at Ellis County Community Partnership
They will be known as EPIC – Everyday Prevention Impacting Community
Kari Sparks, Prevention Consultant with the Regional Prevention Center of NWKS said in an email, “I think this really focuses on what we do – putting policies and programs in place that make an everyday difference in the community. Our main focus is underage substance abuse but substance prevention involves many sectors or the community including medical health, suicide, domestic violence and as the coalition grows our focus will grow as well – especially as we get more partners to the table.”
In 1992 community members in Hays helped organize this agency to resolve community problems, particularly those resulting from alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse.
