The Coalition has been operational since the summer of 2007, and currently has twenty active members. There is excellent representation from the two county drug courts, law enforcement (both state and local, including the Prosecutor's Office), human service providers, gorvernment, substance abuse treatment, and concerned citizens.
Coalition members provide strong linkages across the county and region, with members serving on the local multi-purpose collaborative body (Human Services Network - HSN), the Hillsdale County Board of Commissioners, CAN council (Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness - CAPA), Family Treatment Court advisory council, 4H groups, and many service clubs, churches, and other organizations.
The Coalition staff are active on Coordinated School Health Council, Human Services Network , Hillsdale County Assessment Services (HCAS), School-Justice Partnership, Suicide Prevention Coalition, the Great Start Collaborative, and the Hillsdale County Intermediate School District (ISD) Board of Education. This involvement in multiple sectors of our community helps the Coalition to network and will prove beneficial as the Coalition seeks to partner with others to continue to expand our prevention efforts in Hillsdale County.
