THE COALITION

The Union County Safe Communities Coalition is funded through the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program, created by the Drug-Free Communities Act of 1997 and the Comprehensive Addiction Recovery (CARA) grant. It is directed by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy in partnership with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  We build capacity by engaging 12 distinct sectors to represent the community's whole because local problems need local solutions. We work together in finding solutions to support youth substance use prevention. These are our active sectors and members.
