Community for New Direction (CND) has provided effective leadership development and prevention programming to high-risk youth and families in Franklin County since 1989. CND responds to community needs, serves the inner-city and collaborates with schools in economically distressed neighborhoods to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, as well as violence (ATOD-V).  Please contact CND if you are interested in making a donation, becoming a volunteer or utilizing any of our services.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain children’s information at our website and no part of our website is structured to attract children.
