Community Awareness Network For A Drug-Free Life And Environment, Inc. (CANDLE) was founded as a non-profit organization in 1982. Its mission is to prevent substance abuse and violence among youth.
CANDLE’s goal is to improve the health and climate of our schools and our communities. Prevention education and resistance strategies are provided to youth and their adult allies, and support programs for young people at risk, including tobacco cessation and education.
