The Drug Free Chenango Coalition focuses on capacity building to strengthen the environmental protective factors and reduce the community risk factors that influence substance use in our communities. Through collaboration with diverse community partners we work to raise awareness and reduce stigma associated with various substances. Drug Free Chenango is a recipient of the federal Drug Free Communities grant which supports youth initiatives within the larger coalition
General Coalition meetings are held 4 times per year. 12 Community Sectors are represented on the Coalition which include Healthcare professionals, State/Local Government, Substance Use Reduction agency, Civic/Volunteer Organizations, Youth Serving Organizations, Law Enforcement, Religious/Fraternal Organizations, Schools, Media, Business, Parent, and Youth. Subcommittees of the coalition include Communication, Membership, Data Collection, Evaluation, and Youth. The Youth Committee is chaired by the Drug Free Communities Coordinator, employed by CHN.
