WHO WE ARE

WHAT DOES POMEROY PARTNERS FOR HEALTHY FAMILIES DO?

Pomeroy Partners for Healthy Families is a volunteer organization (coalition) that has one paid staff member. We analyze detailed reports of local data and write a strategic plan for prevention in Pomeroy to prevent risk factors from affecting our kids. We know that local problems like underage drinking and drug use require local solutions. We have strategies at every level of the community to ensure as many people have the necessary knowledge to help our youth make the best decisions. In prevention, the target audience is no longer youth, but adults. The more adults in our community that understand what factors to be aware of, the better prevention works. Thank you to our volunteer members who have helped make our coalition successful!
