Why our work matters
When we work together to invest in health, we build a more prosperous and vibrant community.
“[When] I was involved with the ATOD coalition, we made a postcard to send out to kids so they weren’t driving and drinking. Kids would come up to me and tell me that it had a big impact on them and their choices. That meant a lot to me.”— Emma Dallas, 2018 youth intern
“I don’t know any other organization that has the toolbox to handle this coalition work in our community and the ability to evaluate if our efforts and processes are working. ”— Amy Tait, Housing Coalition Member
