MADD Windsor & Essex County

MADD Windsor & Essex County is a volunteer-based, charitable, grass-roots organization supporting all communities within the Windsor & Essex County area.

Each and every year, thousands of Canadians are killed or injured in impaired driving crashes. Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is a terrible crime that touches all our lives. It is an irresponsible, dangerous and intolerable act. MADD Canada strives to offers support services to victims/survivors, heighten awareness about the dangers of alcohol and/or drug-impaired driving, and to save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.

Efforts are focused on five key areas:

  • Youth Services
  • Victim/Survivor Services
  • Public Awareness and Education
  • Public Policy
  • Anti-Impaired Driving Technology

MADD Windsor & Essex County is made up of mothers, fathers, students, business professionals and concerned citizens who are changing things for the better. We believe you do not need to be a victim/survivor of impaired driving to take action on this vital issue, though many of our supporters have been affected deeply by impaired driving.

If you need help, or would like to join MADD Canada’s efforts, call our toll free line at 1-800-665-6233.

All donations made to MADD Windsor & Essex County stay in our region and help us provide victim/survivor support, public awareness campaigns, school outreach programs, support for legislative change, community events, Project Red Ribbon and many more important initiatives.
