HEARTS for Families: Moultrie and Colquitt County, GA 

HEARTS for Families, Inc. is dedicated to the prevention of underage drinking through the Implementation of strategies specific to communities throughout the state of Georgia.
This month’s focus in Moultrie is to Promote a Social Host Ordinance, one of the three Alcohol Prevention Project strategies in Moultrie, GA.  The other two strategies implemented in Moultrie are ‘Be the Wall’ (a positive messaging campaign) and SMART Moves (an alcohol and drug prevention program for middle and high school students and their parents).  STEP Up Moultrie Workgroup members have been able to establish a rapport with the local law enforcement and have participated in several of their community events to promote Underage Drinking Prevention Awareness.
Currently, STEP Up Moultrie Workgroup members and Colquitt County Sheriff’s office are partnering to promote and educate the community on the need for a local Social Host Ordinance, which would hold property owners responsible for underage drinking occurring on their property.   We are busy planning a Law Enforcement Dinner on May 14, 2015 from 5-9 pm in recognition of National Police Week 2015, May 10-16, 2015.  County and city law enforcement officers, local EMT staff, elected city officials, District Attorney’s Office staff and MADD representatives have been invited to participate.
If you live or work in the Moultrie area, please join the Moultrie STEP Up Workgroup members at our monthly meetings.  
This month’s meeting is May 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am @ 617 1st Ave, Moultrie GA.  See you there!!!
