YFS Staff Attends National Leadership CADCA Forum

Groups from Rapid City and Spearfish, SD meet with Senator John Thune at the Leadership CADCA Forum.

Youth & Family Services staff members Vonnie Ackerman, Pat Schulte, and Tony Walking, together with Mike Long of Rapid City, recently attended the 28th annual National Leadership CADCA Forum (Communities Anti-Drug Coalitions of America)  in Washington, D.C. These individuals represented the Rapid City Oyate Okolakiciye Prevention Coalition.  The goal of CADCA is to offer education and support to prevention coalitions throughout the country to support substance abuse prevention.

As a part of the conference, the group met with their national elected leaders to discuss specific challenges and successes within their communities as they related to drug and alcohol use/abuse and suicide prevention.
