Our coalition members

Come lead the conversation for a healthier Clinton. Your voice and your support are welcome, wanted and needed.

Partners in Community is an open membership coalition for both youth and adults in Clinton. All members come to the table as equals, with equal voices and equal contributions. We meet every month to discuss substance use issues within our community and seek ways to promote health and reduce harmful behaviors.

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.

Coalition Members make a formal commitment to support our collective efforts. Learn more about member expectations and get involved!

Why we do it:

“Engaging and empowering the youth of our community brings me true joy.” – Andrea S. Reu, President of Clinton PTA

“The coalition initiates, plans and creates so many great happenings and programs for the town, I want to help them promote it all.” – Fay Abrahamsson, Editor of the Clinton Patch

“The reason I joined the coalition was that I firmly believe in the power of committed people coming together in unity to find every way possible to keep the families in our Clinton community growing healthy in body, mind, and spirit.” – Nancy Williams

“As a parent and member of a civic organization I wanted to be part of a positive movement to help our community do something to help our young people make healthy decisions.” – Diane Neri

“I see God at work bringing people from all segments of our community to strengthen families and support our kids.” – Pastor Ryan Young

“It is my honor to coordinate the Partnership for Success grant for PiC. Clinton is alive with greatness and incredible people that make a tremendously positive impact upon one another. It is very rewarding to be a part of Clinton growing healthier and more connected!” – Kelley Edwards
