Engaging our communities in efforts to reduce substance abuse through creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for youth and adults in Jones County. Learn how you can help!
The Jones County Safe and Healthy Youth Coalition is a group of local residents and professionals who have come together for a common goal–the safety and well-being of our communities and children. The Coalition is concerned about how drugs and alcohol affect our youth and adults, and is taking action so Jones County can be an even better place for our families to live, work and play. This action is accomplished through a strong strategic plan that incorporates seven strategies to effectively address our goals of collaboration among the community and reduction of substance abuse.
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.
