Who Are We?




MARPC is a group of volunteers who want to help other people.


Join us

We meet at noon on the 4th Tuesday of most months at Pawnee Mental Health, 1558 Hayes Drive.  We normally combine our November and December meetings and meet on the second Tuesday in December.

Many of our members work in professional organizations that specialize in some way of helping; MARPC is a way that all of the individual programs can find ways to work together in order to be more effective.


We want to have members that represent our entire community so we also recruit from these sectors:

  • Youth
  • Parent
  • Business
  • Media
  • School
  • Youth Serving Organization
  • Law Enforcement
  • Religious/Fraternal Organization
  • Civic/Volunteer Group
  • Healthcare Professional
  • Government
  • Substance Abuse Organization

Our Mission:  To reduce risky behaviors through prevention education, community collaboration and other Drug-Free Community or similarly evidence-based strategies.
