One County. One Cause.
MPC members include concerned parents, community members, business leaders, organization representatives, and youths who are committed to making a difference in Montcalm County. The coalition is governed by a member-elected Board of Directors with the day-to-day work being overseen by a Coalition Coordinator.
Our Coalition work is currently funded through a grant from the federal Drug-Free Communities Support Program with approved work in two major areas: underage drinking and prescription drugs, and two minor areas: tobacco and marijuana. We are currently in year 8 of our 10 year grant cycle. Our primary goal is to continue to invite people, including yourself, to the table to help in building long-term coalition sustainability to continue the prevention work in Montcalm County.
This grassroots coalition was initially formed in 2009 as a collaboration between two previously existing prevention groups: Tobacco-Free Montcalm and Montcalm Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking (MCPUD).
The new formed group was then called Drug-Free Montcalm. In 2012, the Medication Disposal Coalition of Montcalm County came under the Drug-Free umbrella. In 2013, Drug-Free Montcalm became YOUTHINK Montcalm, then in late 2016, the name was again changed to Montcalm Prevention Collaborative (MPC).
We invite you to join us!
