THRIVE | COMMUNITY | HEALTH | OPPORTUNITY
Please take a few minutes to take our Community Survey and help us to determine what is needed with in your communities. This survey will help us make our plans for the future and determine what we can work on with community members in order to build a healthy community with opportunities for youth and families of every background to thrive in an alcohol and drug free environment.
KLASAC was formed in 2013 by combining the small towns of Klickitat and Lyle in their efforts to prevent substance abuse.
What is KLASAC?
KLASAC is a group that formed to address the high underage drinking and marijuana use rates in our community. The coalition is made up of different sectors that are involved in our community and have similar goals. We work as a team to reduce youth risk factors and increase protective factors!
Our meetings are open to the community and are held the third Wednesday of every month from 5pm to 6:30 pm alternating location between the Lyle and Klickitat Schools.
