The Drug Free Chenango Coalition brings together individuals and organizations to promote a safe and healthy community. Drug Free Chenango consists of many representatives from all areas of the community. The coalition works to provide change for improvement among the community to ensure good health and safety. In order to do so, they work to implement training, policy changes, and further action to make a change. They hold a Drug Free Community grant that guides them in the process of keeping youth safe and healthy through their coalition work. This grant focuses on prevention and awareness among the youth in their local school.
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.
