About Us

North River Prevention Partners - The Beginning...​North River Prevention Partners was established in 2015 as Palmetto Prevention Partnership by a small, dedicated group of local folks who saw a need and filled it.​

One name change (to reflect the whole North River area), three grant applications, and four years later we finally received the Drug Free Communities grant in October 2019! The grant is a mix of federal dollars and local elbow grease- $125,000/ year with a 100% match from the community (dollars, in-kind services, and/or volunteer hours). That means over $2.5 million in prevention services for our community over the life of the 10-year grant! ​

We hope you join us in our efforts as we work to protect our North River communities from the devastation that substance abuse can bring.​
