Our purpose as the H.O.P.E. Coalition is to establish and strengthen collaboration among individuals, organizations, and Tribal and Non-Tribal Governmental agencies operating at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Through this collaborative effort, our goal is to prevent and reduce substance misuse among youth, young adults, and over time, older adults. We believe this would be achieved by reducing the risk factors in our community which support substance misuse, while increasing protective factors which reduce substance misuse and support positive social norms, attitudes and behaviors.
Did you know that the HOPE Coalition also operates a “Social Justice and Racial Equity Lending Library”? Check out the details on the Sitka Counseling website.
