Adams County Community Public Health and Safety Network Coalition serves Adams County, a rural farming community in eastern Washington. Forty-eight percent of the 16,600 residents are of Hispanic origin. The goals of the coalition are to: 1) reduce substance abuse by providing prevention programs for youth and families, and 2) strengthen community collaborations by supporting local prevention coalitions.
To achieve these goals, the coalition will implement the following strategies:
1) provide awareness, education, and training of assets for at-risk youth and their families through the SMART program series presented at Boys and Girls Club;
2) collaborate with the Boys and Girls Club to provide academic, recreational, and social activities after school;
3) work to increase citizen and agency participation in prevention activities with
a special focus on the Latino community;
4) involve underrepresented sectors in the activities and leadership of the coalition; and
5) increase collaboration among the coalition partners to increase the number of prevention activities. CA/NCF
