Health Unlimited, Inc. is the fiscal agent for the Springfield Community Partnership. The coalition serves Springfield, VT, a rural community with a population of approximately 9,800. To achieve the two goals of reducing substance abuse among youth and of strengthening community anti-drug coalitions, the Partnership will implement the following strategies:
1) work in tandem with area substance abuse prevention groups to administer a community-wide parent assessment;
2) process and analyze a 6th grade pre-survey to provide baseline data on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and coordinate the community-wide dissemination of information;
3) coordinate the JustNow Restorative Justice with the Peer-to-Peer program and implement a school-based mentoring program to support youth who are experiencing behavioral difficulties and who need intervention; and
4) continue to solicit and to strengthen community resources to form a solid network of anti-drug collaborators. ca/ncf
