Lee's Summit CARES



Lee's Summit CARES approaches prevention through three different areas: Parents - because they are the wall against risky behaviors, prevention - because youth need safe and sober alternatives for fun and need to take responsibility for their actions and finally Character Development - because core values make the person and right choices.

We are a community task force working to combat substance abuse and promote youth safety in Lee's Summit.  The task force is comprised of representatives from healthcare organizations, law enforcement, area businesses, churches, and civic groups along with educators, students and parents. Partnerships and funding are critical to the success of our efforts.  Lee’s Summit CARES works to provide programs at a reasonable cost so all residents can benefit. Scholarships are available for most programs and can be obtained in advance of participation. Funding for our organization is obtained through grants, fundraising, donations, in kind services, and program fees.  In 1985 Lee's Summit CARES received designation as a 501(c)3 non-profit
