About Us

The Alliance for Better Communities is a community coalition dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy environment for the youth and young adults of our community by working to reduce underage drinking and substance abuse. Members of our coalition come from across the sectors of the community, which include:

  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse Organization
  • Business
  • Civic / Volunteer Group
  • Healthcare
  • Law Enforcement
  • Media
  • Parent
  • Religious/Fraternal
  • School
  • State / Local Government Agency
  • Youth
  • Youth Servicing Organization

Members assess the conditions and factors in our community that contribute to specific negative behaviors and work to address these at the environmental level through awareness campaigns, local advocacy, and collective action. We help members of our community identify issues of concern that impact youth and develop strategies to address these issues and work to create community-level change. When all the sectors of a community come together to address a common issue, change can happen!
