Nuestra visión es la de un Condado que abraza y promueve la salud y la seguridad de todos los residentes.

La Coalición de Prevención del Condado de Newport está formada por miembros voluntarios que representan y sirven a múltiples sectores de nuestra región. Nuestro objetivo es desarrollar, aplicar y defender estrategias eficaces de prevención y bienestar basadas en la comunidad.

Nuestro compromiso de apoyar a los residentes del Condado de Newport nos impulsa a seguir ampliando y determinando las necesidades insatisfechas en nuestra comunidad, al tiempo que tratamos de involucrar a los residentes en nuestros esfuerzos.

¡Siempre estamos buscando miembros de nuestra comunidad que se unan a nuestros esfuerzos y formen parte de la solución! 

Recursos regionales de Rhode Island

Las Coaliciones Regionales de Rhode Island están compuestas por siete regiones que cubren el Estado. Las Coaliciones representan a los padres, los jóvenes, los agentes de policía, las escuelas, la asistencia sanitaria, las empresas, los funcionarios públicos y los líderes de la comunidad. Evaluamos los retos que plantea el consumo de sustancias en la región y colaboramos en el desarrollo de políticas y programas con prácticas basadas en la evidencia.
