The very catchy phrase " I Need No Drugs" that Frank Kelly often says when you met him. The organization has brought many bikes, smiles and hope to many youth. So lets join the phrase and keep it going for our youth and Say it Loud, "I Need No Drugs." Continue to support No Drugs America in any way we can. Young Women's Empowerment is also grateful for their volunteer service to our young girls. Gwen Dowdy-Rodgers, Founder

No drugs of America has been great for the community. It helps give us and most importantly our youth awareness of drugs and alcohol use. I think this non profit organization has made a positive impact in the high desert and hope to see it expand to other counties.

No Drugs America Association, Inc. has been diligent in their pursuit to end drug use among kids for more than a decade! They have been active in the High Desert communities and have even found their way out to Jurupa Valley. Their founder and CEO, Frank Kelly, truly has a heart for kids and the communities they are raised in. In the short time I have been involved with this nonprofit, they have shared information with several hundred parents, dozens of other organizations, and given away brand new bicycles to many happy kids. No Drugs America, Inc. is one of the hardest working nonprofits in the desert and has an attitude that makes a difference.

I met Frank Kelly in a community meeting serving the High Desert. Back 15 years ago I learned how his program educated parents, children all ages. They had put on a community event that I have been apart of since then. I have served on the advisory team and now the Board. They give out educational books and information and teach the community about different way business target young children to be attracted to different types of alcohol that are legally sold. The importance of of talking to our children and the harm drugs cause. We work with Mothers against Drunk drivers. Law Enforcement against illegal sale of drugs.
As a parent of a child killed by a drunk driver being apart of this organization is a very near and dear to my heart. I have worked with youth for over 25 years and have seen the in packed of heart felt sorrow of death and incarceration for the youth that get entangled in the world of drugs and alcohol can lead too.
Frank has had events through out the High Desert in different Cities that bring vendors and communities together to help us fight drug and alcohol abuse. He goes to schools and does programs with the kids regarding drugs and how to Say NO to drugs. It takes a community to raise our children and No Drugs America does this in its mission and actions.

No Drugs America's mission is to stop drug use before it starts with our kids. Since the year 2000 we have educated thousands of parents and kids about the dangers of drug use and abuse. We encourage parents and kids to attend our annual NO Drug America / No Drugs Kids Day and we have given away hundreds of brand new bicycles for kids to ride and get exercise and know that the community cares about them. Our message is clear to parents "Prevention is the Best Treatment" and for kids to "Say it Loud, I Need NO Drugs " which is impactful in deterring drug use in our community.

I have worked with NoDrugs America, mostly shooting videos for them for our TV station KVVB TV. I also gave some of my own talents doing a PR Video for them. They demonstrate to kids that there are many avenues of fun beside the drug route. I have no stats, but I feel Frank and his friends have made a positive influence on some of the kids . With marijuana becoming legal In 2018, it is on the same level society acceptance as alcohol.. The organization is not just talking of the evil of illegal drugs but educating these precious young people about the dangers of alcohol and marijuana. Blessings to the good people in No Drugs America-we need more like them-keep up the good work.

I found out about No Drugs America from my wife, Claudia Adams. Together we travel to the High Desert every year to attend No Drugs America Day-Day in the Park. It's a two hour drive from Los Angeles, but I feel it is one of the finest Non-Profits focusing on children from pre-school to High School that I have ever seen and worth the time to attend! The event has special guest speakers, booths, games, activities, finger printing, police, firefighters, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, food and drawings for free bicycles. The children look forward to this event every year and hold themselves to the highest standards so that they can come and participate! It's an incredible program. Frank Kelly founded No Drugs America to brings children and parents together to talk about the dangers of illegal drug use and it works! He has created a drug program that focuses on prevention! Every year I see children, parents and educators coming together to take a stand against drugs of every kind. I can't say enough about what a wonderful and effective program Frank Kelly has created.

I met Frank Kelly of No Drugs America Day through a collaborative meeting and I participated in NDA day and I have been a volunteer ever since. His dedication to educate the kids about staying away from drugs is from the heart. He truly cares about the well being of our community and his goal is to bring up leaders. I will continue to support this organization.

When I lost someone I loved to drugs, I realized I had to do something to educate children about the dangers of using drugs. I decided to use my own money to make a Public Service Announcement and after a long search, met Frank Kelly, the founder of No Drugs America who convinced me his nonprofit was one that makes a difference in a child's life. Frank has one goal - to keep kids off drugs and he does it in many ways including, going into school, talking to the children starting in elementary school and having drug free family oriented events! He succeeds because he cares! And the children know he cares! This is a nonprofit that works because it goes "one on one" with kids to keep them on track and lets them know they have worth, they have something to offer, and that they are loved! I was asked to be the celebrity guest at his annual NO DRUGS AMERICA Family Day Event and after attending once, I'm hooked. I've watched it grow into an event where families come together in the park to share an incredibly bonding, positive experience with games, face painting, police, firemen, booths with educational materials, food, fun, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, woodworking projects and amazing raffles! Gift baskets and many BIKES are given away to the children at each event! I donate a bike every year now, and believe their goal is to give 30-50 bikes in the future. I've watched these children return every year. They get up on stage and dance and sing and announce proudly, on the top of their lungs, I NEED NO DRUGS! I watch these children grow! Each year, they return healthy, happy, more confident and drug free! They develop positive self images! I have tears in my eyes at the end of every NO DRUGS AMERICA FAMILY DAY EVENT! Frank Kelly has made me so proud to be a part of such an amazing origanization!
