Jenifer Moore is a grant-writer, program creator, and public relations professional who works tirelessly to bring resources for the benefits of the communities she works and lives.

Jenifer has brought in funds and contributions from local community organizations and businesses since she started her career. She has also secured funds from world-wide funding sources in her community. She works hard because she believes that access to quality programs should be available to everyone.

Jenifer took over as Executive Director of the Delaware County Prevention Council in May 2019.  Over the past two years she worked to create strong relationships with law enforcement, treatment, and other prevention providers to help reach the council’s mission to reduce and prevent substance abuse among youth and adults in our county.

Jenifer looks forward to each and every fall when she and her family coach a baseball team of athletes with special needs for the Yorktown Challenge League. Her whole family is committed to the sport of softball and she finds this as a great way to give back to her community.

History of the DCPC

What began as an effort by concerned parents in 1986 has evolved into one of the largest local coordinating councils in the State of Indiana.

Each year the Delaware County Prevention Council (DCPC) awards grants in the areas of prevention/education, intervention/treatment, as well as justice/law enforcement. These grants are awarded to local agencies that submit applications for projects that adhere to the problem statements listed in our annual Comprehensive Community Plan on substance abuse.

DCPC has a board of directors consisting of 40 members in total including President Bruce Rector, Vice President Carol Ammon, Treasurer Rhonda Clark, Secretary Jeannie Wright, and Executive Director Jenifer LaVelle-Moore.

As of now, DCPC has three standing task forces: prevention, treatment, and law enforcement. There are also several other committees including a Grant Review Committee, Red Ribbon Committee, and Ad Hoc Committees as needed.

The DCPC is designated as a 501 c (3) not-for-profit agency with by-laws in place. We are provided with a community consultant by the Governor’s Commission for a Drug Free Indiana, who assist in our ongoing activities. As the designated local coordinating council for Delaware County, we are part of the statewide network of the Governors Commission for a Drug Free Indiana and the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
