Welcome to the Jones County Safe and Healthy Youth Coalition website. We invite you to visit this website often for updates about information such as meetings, upcoming events, new trends, laws, drug and alcohol use prevention, campaigns, goals and community resources, etc. See our Annual Report and Coalition Case Statement to see how the work the Coalition is doing is making a difference for our youth. You can also see our Sustainability Plan Summary to see our steps to sustain our efforts financially for years to come.
We rely on your support of your youth and community - they will need and want your encouragement and support. You are key to their growth and success during the many demands and challenges they face during their teen years.
We take our responsibility very seriously. We are a group of local residents who have come together for a common goal-- the safety and well being of our communities and children.
If you cannot find the information you need on our website, please click on the "Contact Us" tab above and we will do our best to help you.
Thank you and visit often, Sheriff Greg Graver, JCSHY Coalition President
