About Us

Recognizing that local problems require local solutions, Roanoke Prevention  Alliance (RPA) was created in 1997 to build a coalition of citizens, parents, and professionals devoted to preventing drug and alcohol abuse among teens and young adults in the City of Roanoke.

By working together, the coalition implements strategies based on collected data and deploys resources that are tailored to the needs of specific neighborhoods. Since problems vary by neighborhood the targeting maximizes the effectiveness of limited resources.
