  • CASA Monthly Coalition Meetings– This group comes together monthly to make efficient use of limited community resources and aims to achieve measurable outcomes in substance abuse and other risk behaviors. These community meetings can serve several purposes; they can highlight a specific issue of concern, draw people together in response to a crisis, determine interest in starting a specific taskforce or enlarge an existing workgroup. Our coalition works together to develop strategies and an action plan that will help make the community less conducive to risk behaviors that lead to substance abuse and other problem behaviors.
