Wings of Hope Anti-Drug program, 1988-1995
Boxes 586 - 591

Historical Note

The Wings of Hope Anti-Drug Program was established in April 1989 to address the drug epidemic affecting urban enclaves throughout the U.S., but particularly in Atlanta, Georgia. Under the leadership of the President of SCLC, Joseph E. Lowery and Program Coordinator, Reverend Richard Dalton, the Wings of Hope program organized church and community-based initiatives such as workshops on drug- prevention strategies, AIDS education, youth empowerment, mentorship, and offered support to at-risk families. Of particular importance to the Wings of Hope program was coalition building among churches, the community at large, municipal and county service providers, and the U.S. Department of Justice. Such partnerships were established with the intent of reducing crime and the demand for illicit drugs in targeted communities in Metro-Atlanta.
