OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Coalition will engage all sectors of the North Shore community in a comprehensive, collaborative action plan to introduce sustainable behavioral and environmental changes that measurably reduce the use and abuse of dangerous substances in our community, with initial focus on alcohol and marijuana in our 18 and under youth population.
We've been working, learning and teaching from home for two months now. The puzzles are completed, the shows have all been watched, and gaming has taken the place of baseball practice and dance class.
Maybe now is the time to prioritize our physical, mental, and emotional well-being by practicing great habits to boost our health, energy, positivity and overall wellness! Jump start your own wellness by joining CASA for this 19 day challenge starting on May 18th!
Parents, Kids, Neighbors, Friends, let’s all be in this together!
How to Participate
