Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities
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 (The Alliance) to begin the next phase in Oakland Prevention.
Today, the Alliance has grown to include 21+ community prevention coalitions serving fifty-five+ local communities and provides Shatter the Stigma: Family & Recovery Support and education groups for anyone affected by addiction.
