After 34 years, the drug prevention group PRIDE-Omaha, Inc. has announced it is calling it quits. The organization’s board of directors will dissolve the non-profit corporation March 31.

PRIDE-Omaha says it has become difficult to secure funding for the services it provided. In a statement, PRIDE-Omaha said it prides itself for serving children, families, communities, the state and the country as a resource center and advocate for drug-free children.

The volunteers and staff have issued a plea to all parents and concerned citizens to continue their work by standing up to the dangers that drugs face children every day.

The organization noted that it survived 25 years longer than most of the 4,000 similar drug prevention organizations that began operating when it did.
