Unite/ Organize / Inform / Educate
one member at a time
As coalitions are uniquely designed to create change, they must take action to create these changes in policy, program and practice. Community actions must be related to a subsequent community change. These actions must be facilitated by or on behalf of the Coalition and must be aimed at the issues the Coalition is working on. Please join us in this important work, we take fun breaks. For more info, visit our services page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The advocacy center is dedicated to all parents because you are your child's best advocate. We want to support you by providing reliable information and resources. Be sure to check back periodically updates.

Portfolio & Description
DFH was organized as a community coalition in 2003 due to increasing rates of youth substance abuse.
As approved by the Board of Directors in 2008, our mission is to organize, inform, educate, and unite our community in its efforts to reduce substance abuse.
In 2010, DFH shifted its focus towards prevention strategies, including providing information, social marketing campaigns, community prevention events, offering training to members of our community, as well as mobilizing law enforcement to do compliance checks, and enforce existing laws, policies, and procedures.
