Decatur Drug-Free Community Coalition
To improve the overall health and quality of life for Decatur/Macon County residents
The Decatur Drug-Free Community Coalition is a community-based formal arrangement for cooperation and collaboration among groups or sectors of the community in which each group retains its identity, but all agree to work together toward a common goal of building a safe, healthy, and drug-free community.
The coalition works with the community to identify and address local youth substance use problems and create sustainable community-level change through environmental strategies. The Drug-Free Coalition is managed and staffed by the Decatur Community Partnership. Coalition meetings are held monthly and are open to the public.
The coalition is operated through community partners and is supported by various sources, including the Illinois Department of Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), local contributions, and partner in-kind services.
