The mission of the Tri-Community Coalition is to work together to prevent substance abuse and related risky behavior and to promote a healthy community for our youth through education, partnerships and effective programming.
The Tri-Community Coalition is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to prevent the abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs through education, community action and involvement, and the promotion of a drug-free lifestyle. The Tri-Community Coalition is made up of volunteers representing organizations in Berkley, Huntington Woods and Oak Park, including businesses, government, faith community, school districts, law enforcement, healthcare, homeowners and public and private agencies. The coalition works together to reduce substance abuse in their local neighborhoods. We educate parents, students and other community members on the impact and prevention of substance abuse. We also develop youth activities to encourage positive drug-free behaviors.
