Welcome to Montcalm Prevention Collaborative
At MPC, our goal is to reduce youth substance misuse throughout Montcalm County in a comprehensive and long-term manner. While our primary focus is on youth, we are also dedicated to valuing each life by creating a healthier community.
Originally formed in 2009, our grassroots coalition was a collaboration between two previously existing prevention groups: Tobacco-Free Montcalm and Montcalm Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking (MCPUD). While our Coalition’s name has changed, what hasn’t changed is our member’s commitment to the community.
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.
