What is a Coalition?

Coalitions connect multiple sectors of the community–including businesses, parents, media, law enforcement, schools, faith organizations, health providers, social service agencies, and government–to collaborate and develop plans, policies and strategies to provide an evidence=based comprehensive public health approach to support prevention efforts.

Who is a Coalition Member?

This means pretty much anyone in the WNESU school district can be a member of the Greater Falls Connections coalition–including you! There are no age limits and membership is free. 

What Are the Benefits of Being a Coalition Member?

When you join a coalition:

  • You have access to many other peoples' strengths and expertise. Problems in the community can be more effectively addressed when representatives and individuals from all parts of the community come together. This makes sharing resources and ideas easier.

  • You can get to know your neighbors and other members of the communities we serve.

  • You can acquire new leadership and community-building skills.

  • You can learn about stigma and equity through strength-based and trauma-informed initiatives and programs.

  • You can gain new knowledge about specific prevention-related topics through trainings, speakers, and other presentations.

  • You get to make your voice heard. Your opinions, thoughts, ideas, concerns, experiences, and knowledge can make a huge difference in shaping a more positive and healthy community.

How Do You Become a Member
