The “FACTS” of the Scituate FACTS Coalition name stands for Families, Adolescents and Communities against Substances, which embodies what our community-owned and community-led coalition stands for today. All members of our community participate in our work: parents, youth, business owners, clergy, medical professionals, school guidance, media, board of selectmen, police, treatment professionals, health educators, people in recovery, teachers, and administrators.
What started through a grassroots effort in 2011 has continued to get stronger through collaboration. Two staff members coordinate FACTS programs, which rely on the dedication of volunteers to fulfill our shared mission of helping children, and our community, thrive.
Our work has been funded by a Drug Free Communities Support Program grant since 2013.
