The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities formed as an extension of the successful Coalition of Healthy Communities (CHC) network. CHC was founded in 1993 by four local coalition groups seeking to strengthen their existing collaboration through the creation of an umbrella organization. In 2003, CHC members, with the support of Oakland County’s Office of Substance Abuse Services, launched the Alliance of Coalition for Healthy Communities to begin the next phase in Oakland Prevention.
Today, the Alliance has grown to include nineteen community prevention coalitions serving fifty-five+ local communities and is the Chapter for Oakland County Families Against Narcotics with 5 dedicated regions to increase support and recovery efforts.
In July 2018, the Alliance updated our Mission, Vision and Core Values:
Mission: Through substance abuse prevention, mental and physical wellness, and recovery support programs, the Alliance connects, strengthens, and mobilizes strategic partners to promote healthier communities.
Vision: The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities will be nationally-recognized as a leader of best practices in collaboration on substance abuse prevention initiatives that create and sustain healthy communities.
Core Values: As stewards of community trust, the Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities believes in: Collaboration. Prevention. Results
