What We Do

Programs and Initiatives

Programs and Services

Our IMPACT Community coalitions in Dallas, Ellis and Navarro counties are designed to have widespread community impact. We measure outcomes such as past 30-day use of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs and perception of risks (parents and youth). In one community, we helped reduce past 30-day use of alcohol by 60 percent. In another, we are seeing a steady decrease in past 30-day use of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs.

If you have a stake in one of these communities and a commitment to creating a safe and healthy place for youth, please contact us here. We always need and appreciate new volunteers! Learn more here.

You may not be as familiar with our agency name as you are with the programs we have designed, funded, implemented and sustained in Dallas, Ellis and Navarro counties, including:

IMPACT Dallas County - Garland

IMPACT Ellis County - Waxahachie

IMPACT Ellis County - Red Oak

IMPACT Navarro


About one-third of youth in the communities DPR serves report it is easy to gain access to prescription drugs not prescribed to them (IMPACT Prescription Drug Survey, 2017). Yet many in these same communities do not see prescription drug misuse as a pressing issue (IMPACT Community Survey, 2018). Our goal is to increase awareness through education to help prevent youth access to prescription drugs and save lives.
