Avon Coaliton for Every Student is very pleased that the coalition was named in 2009 as a recipient of the federal SAMSHA Drug Free Communities Grant. This grant, was in the amount of $125,00 per year for five years, and is being used to involve and engage the community of Avon to prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug abuse among youth. ACES was one of 161 community organizations accross the country to receive this grant. ACES welcomes parents, students and all community members to join the coalition as we begin implementing programs within the community to empower youth to make healthy decisions regarding drug and alcohol use.
