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.
