Who is Health Choices Caring Communities HC3?


Our Mission:

We are a community coalition, working together, to reduce underage substance use. Youth professionals, schools, media, law enforcement, government, parents, youth, religious leaders, health care professionals, substance treatment professionals and civic organizations work together to shape positive health behaviors in our county. We currently focus our efforts on decreasing underage alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and opiate/prescription drug use

What can HC3 do for my community?
