The Northland Coalition was formed in 2001 to fulfill the articulated need for better collaboration of substance use prevention programs and strategies throughout the Kansas City Northland.  The Coalition meets bi-monthly to strategize and rally support to prevent high risk behaviors including underage drinking, illicit drug use, and suicide throughout Clay, Platte and Ray Counties.  Throughout the last 25 years, the Northland Coalition has been recognized regionally and nationally for their program and policy outcomes.

Northland Coalition membership is open and anyone interested in keeping our community safe and healthy is encouraged to get involved.  It is our philosophy that youth substance use is a communal problem and its solution is everyone’s responsibility. Parents, schools, businesses, law enforcement, health agencies, community leaders and religious institutions all play an important role in creating a safe and healthy environment for our youth to thrive.  The Northland Coalition serves to help strategize to make this possible.
