Substance abuse is the primary issue impacting North Dakota’s communities, families, and lives. Every one of us has an opportunity to change that.


Our Mission

We are empowering and educating families and children in a collaborative effort to delay and decrease alcohol and substance use in our community and yours.

In 2016, 76,000 individuals in the U.S. died from substance abuse via alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription pain meds. The statistics surrounding this issue are alarming, and there are family heartaches attached to each one. The Matto Foundation intends to decrease addiction trends through education, awareness, and resources for victims and their families.


  • Parent Tacklebox: We are launching a Matto Parent Tacklebox to equip and engage parents to delay, decrease, and defeat substance abuse.

  • A Little Magic Project: A positive messaging campaign to raise awareness of our mission.
