ACHC 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 though 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, our alliance has grown to include eighteen community prevention coalitions serving forty+ local communities. Individuals and organizations who share our commitment to building healthy and drug-free communities can also become members.
