COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION

Our coalition is made up of individuals and organizations that have an interest in substance abuse prevention. Every success our coalition has had is due to members and organizations that have committed their time, expertise, and resources to our initiatives. With successful mobilization, we can achieve our mission to reduce substance abuse and create population-level change with the help of everyday people just like you.
