Take Action

Alliance for Healthy Communities (AHC) is a grant funded, grass roots coalition that has taken up the challenge of identifying and changing community conditions that enable alcohol and drug abuse, as well as mental health and suicide risks, among area youth. AHC serves the communities within the footprint of the Parkway C-2 School District by providing a platform for building partnerships and collaboration between individuals and organizations from across our region.

Through the work of AHC partners, targets for change are identified and actions undertaken that, sustained over time, will reduce the rates of youth substance abuse and the resulting harm.

Community Resources

We want this community resources page to be a place for our partners to share resources with each other as well as with our community as a whole. There are so many resources that it could fill many pages. We will keep this page up to date with resources that are current and useful but not a complete list. If you are in need of some resources you don’t see on this website or if you have resources that you would like to see on this site, please contact us.

Our Community Partners

Alliance for Healthy Communities exists as a platform for building partnerships and collaboration between partners. In the traditional sense, AHC is not an “agency” with its own agenda or services to sustain. Rather, AHC priorities and initiatives reflect consensus among community partners built upon local evidence about substance abuse, its root causes and local capacities for effective action. Our partners create the spirit and backbone of community level substance abuse prevention, providing the resources necessary to work for community changes that can reduce rates of youth substance abuse.
