History of Alliance

The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities (The Alliance) 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 to begin the next phase in Oakland Prevention.

Today, the Alliance has grown to include 21+ community prevention coalitions serving 55+ local communities and recovery support, wellness and prevention education for anyone affected by substance misuse.
