CALIFORNIA YOUTH COALITION
From the CA Youth Coalition website: Today’s Youth are faced with a myriad of complex and difficult issues and often lack an adequate support system to transition successfully into adulthood. In response, The California Coalition for Youth (CCY) provides strong statewide policy leadership around issues concerning disconnected runaway and homeless youth and provides direct support to youth and families through our program, the California Youth Crisis Line.
From the Raising Placer website: Raising Placer is a network of community coalitions in Placer County currently funded by the Drug Free Communities Support Program from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our coalitions work with our communities to prevent and reduce youth substance use. Through collaboration, the goal of the Raising Placer network of coalitions is to strengthen and sustain prevention efforts throughout the county.
