The West Garfield Park Community Stakeholders is sponsored in part by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Our Mission is to:
- Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private non-profit agencies, federal, state, local and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth.
- Reduce substance use among youth and, over time, reduce substance abuse among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse.
Our Purpose is to:
Create opportunities via programs, activities and events to help direct youth towards positive alternatives to violence as well as teaching them how to become productive citizens through positive civic engagement.
Our Vision as stakeholders is to engage a partnership of residents, parents, youth, educational institutions, organizations and public servants with a common goal to reduce violence within the West Garfield Park community. And as stakeholders, our purpose is to reduce violence by strengthening our community through programs, activities and events that build healthy and productive lives.
