Seward Prevention Coalition is a group of community volunteers from a variety of backgrounds advocating wellness and positive change in Seward. The Coalition was formed in 2005 and now consists of over 40 members from 18 different organizations in Seward and the surrounding area. The mission of the Seward Prevention Coalition is “Partnering to promote all dimensions of wellness through education, advocacy and support.”
Through community interviews and assessments, Seward Prevention Coalition has identified that:
· Seward has a culture of acceptance of underage drinking and drug use.
· Seward has a culture of acceptance of unhealthy drinking and drug use and modeling irresponsible behavior to our youth.
Seward Prevention Coalition is in the process of assimilating the projects and ideas from the January 24th Town Hall Meeting….stay tuned and if you are interested in joining the Coalition or helping with projects on prevention of underage drinking/drug use, please email Joanie at : firstname.lastname@example.org
