"Building community bridges to promote positive behavior"
The Coalition's primary goal is to support and promote prevention programs in Churchill County for youth and families.
The Coalition seeks to eliminate risk factors that affect our youth by identifying problems and gaps in service.
The Coalition tries to fill those gaps by bringing money back to the community through grants in order to facilitate effective prevention programs.
The Churchill Community Coalition is made up of over 50 community partners who have come together to address the needs of Churchill County as indicated in the Coalition’s Community Needs Assessment.
Some represented agencies include: Churchill County Social Services Social Services, New Frontier Treatment Center, Churchill County School District, Churchill County Sheriff’s Office, Fallon Police Department, Juvenile Probation, Division of Child and Family Services, Parks and Recreation, Rural Mental Health, Cooperative Extension, Churchill County DA, City Attorney, The City of Fallon, Lahontan Valley Literacy, Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe, County Commissioners and local businesses.
Anyone in the community is welcome to become a member and/or partner.
The Coalition maintains staffing and administrative structure to achieve the ultimate goal of acting as the community prevention funding source, providing technical assistance and oversight for prevention programs.
The Coalition also has a Prevention Plan, which outlines the existing programs and needed programs in Churchill County to address the youth problem behaviors. The Coalition also provides four environmental strategies programs which work to change the environment regarding substance & alcohol abuse.
