Alliance for Healthy Communities
Alliance for Healthy Communities (AHC) is a grant funded, grass roots coalition that has taken up the challenge of identifying and changing community conditions that enable alcohol and drug abuse, as well as mental health and suicide risks, among area youth. AHC serves the communities within the footprint of the Parkway C-2 School District by providing a platform for building partnerships and collaboration between individuals and organizations from across our region. Through the work of AHC partners, targets for change are identified and actions undertaken that, sustained over time, will reduce the rates of youth substance abuse and the resulting harm.
Engage the community to reduce youth substance misuse and risks for suicide by raising awareness and changing community norms.
A community empowered to make positive choices through knowledge, skills and resources.
