Information DAART Meeting at First United Methodist Church on September 30th


The Kewanee Police Department will talk about the new Drug and Alcohol Addiction Response Team (DAART) program in Kewanee on September 30, 2023, at 10 AM at First United Methodist Church.  The DAART Program is funded from a grant.  “The DAART mission is to provide a direct and sustained approach to promote mental well-being, prevent substance addiction, and support treatment and recovery opportunities for community members coping with mental health disorders, mental health crises, and drug and alcohol dependence”, according to the Kewanee Police Department.  First United Methodist Church is located at 108 E Central Blvd.

The Kewanee Police Department plans to use the $200,000 Grant from the Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI) to form the DAART initiative in partnership with the Henry and Stark County Health Department, Henry County Court Services, Bridgeway and the Kewanee Commission on Human Relations.  The funding from the grant will support a program to help curb violent crime associated with the narcotics trade in the Kewanee area over the next two years.
