The Coalition For Health Promotion is a project of Youngstown UMADAOP comprised of key community stakeholders and citizens which plan, oversee, and implement environmental prevention services to reduce youth substance in targeted areas of our community. We conduct and sponsor youth events to reduce substance use, establish evidence based prevention programming in schools using best practices models, provide and sponsor training for community groups, law enforcement, faith based institutions, parents in skills to prevent youth substance use, conduct community wide needs assessments, disseminate literature distribution, conduct neighborhood canvassing and compliance checks, all which aim to create a safer, healthier community where youth do not engage in substance use, and adults do not engage in substance misuse.
