National Family Partnership, formerly the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth, was established as a grassroots, nonprofit organization in 1980 by a handful of concerned and determined parents who were convinced they should begin to play a leadership role in drug prevention. Nancy Reagan was an Honorary Chair of NFP. Since its founding thirty years ago, NFP has devoted its efforts to the well-being of youth. Today, NFP is a national leader in drug prevention education & advocacy. Their mission is to lead and support our nation’s families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug free youth.
“I am applaud the work of the National Family Partnership and encourage families, schools, and community groups to help promote this worthy cause to keep drugs away from our children and grandchildren,” said Rep. Bailey.
National Family Partnership’s work is recognized through its growing network of nearly 100 Partners, consisting on local coalitions, PTO groups, and parent committees. NFP State and Community Partners are organizations in which parents, youth, and other volunteers share and maximize resources, information and ideas.
