The Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S. (Community Action and Resources for Empowerment and Success) Coalition is conducting a Community Readiness Survey to bring the community together around the mission to reduce youth substance abuse and creating a drug free community.
All residents of the Concho Valley, including youth, are encouraged to participate in the survey by visiting the CARES website at  The survey is also available in paper format and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Community feedback is very valuable to the efforts of the coalition.  Be a part of the solution by completing the survey by the close date Tuesday, July 1, 2014.

In 2007, CV CARES formed with the mission of creating an environment that encourages the reduction of youth substance abuse so children and families can thrive.  Now a coalition of the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley, a nonprofit 501(c)3, CV CARES collaborates with agencies and individuals from 12 sectors of our community.
