“Partners in Community is about all of Clinton coming together to help inspire positive attitudes and empower healthy choices in our youth and adults.”
The mission of PiC is to promote an environment that supports a healthy, drug-free lifestyle and positive development for our youth.
This will be accomplished by working to inspire and empower the residents of Clinton to connect, talk and take action on matters that affect the well-being of our young people.
Substance use, how we deal with stress, and how we treat each other can all be influenced by the kinds of values and experiences that our entire community upholds. This requires a community-wide conversation and effort, which Partners in Community strives to model and inspire.
Our 2019 – 2020 Coalition
We represent 12 sectors in the community: youth, parents, business people, media, school representatives, youth-serving organizations, religious groups, police, local government, medical practitioners, civic group members, and others that are involved with reducing substance use.
