Impact Montevallo is a collaborative partnership of concerned citizens raising awareness of the youth substance use issues in the City of Montevallo and educates youth and adults to take action to prevent youth substance use.
The City of Montevallo held its first youth drug prevention team meeting on February 13, 2018. Since our first meeting, our volunteers named our coalition, and we are now serving the City of Montevallo, Alabama as Impact Montevallo. Our coalition was formed after the city became a partner of Compact2020, a county organization that conducts juvenile substance use investigations with the aim to help youth access help instead of ending up in the juvenile justice system. After joining Compact2020, Mayor Hollie Cost established the city’s prevention team to engage the community in preventing youth from ever starting to use substances.
