About Care Coalition
The CARE Coalition, which was incorporated May 2011, brings together organizations and individuals who provide services and resources that help youth and families create positive and supportive environments that lead to resiliency and self-empowerment.
The CARE Coalition is a nonprofit organization that provides awareness, and education to members of the community regarding the number one health problem in Nevada: alcohol and drug abuse. The goal of the coalition is to reduce the number of first time drug users in the community and to provide a resource for at-risk individuals to build their capacity and resilience.
In 2012 the CARE Coalition granted $65,000 to two non-profit youth agencies in Clark County with money from Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA).
The Coalition has community members and partners from the youth; local business; healthcare professionals; educators; media; law enforcement; youth organizations; parents; religious, fraternal and civic organizations; schools; volunteer groups; and state, local and tribal agencies-communities.
The Coalition meets the second Tuesday of every month from Noon-1pm at 6272 Spring Mountain Rd. #105, Las Vegas, NV 89146.
