Welcome to the Jones County Safe and Healthy Youth Coalition website. We invite you to visit this website often for updates about information such as meetings, upcoming events, new trends, laws, drug and alcohol use prevention, campaigns, goals and community resources, etc.
We rely on your support of your youth and community - they will need and want your encouragement and support. You are key to their growth and success during the many demands and challenges they face during their teen years.
We take our responsibility very seriously. We are a group of local residents and professionals who have come together for a common goal- the safety and well being of our communities and children.
Please click and read through the various pages of information to see if we have the information you are looking for. It is our desire to keep you informed and answer the many questions you might have. If you cannot find it on this site please let us know by using the contact us link.
