The Burlington Partnership for a Healthy Community is a coalition of Burlington residents, businesses, educators, parents, medical professionals, youth law enforcement officials and more who recognize that the damages of drugs, alcohol abuse and tobacco use affect us all and we work together to address the causes and consequences of substance abuse to create a healthier environment in Burlington.
We focus on the following principles to guide our mission:
- Education and Public Awareness
We inform the community of the dangers associated with misuse of alcohol and other drugs and promote the effectiveness of prevention strategies.
Every member of our community can be an effective part of prevention efforts. We provide opportunities for individuals and organizations to work together to achieve mutual outcomes.
We are a voice for prevention in Burlington. We educate our community and policy makers to make informed decisions to improve local and state practices, policies, and laws.
- Services & Supports
We implement evidence-based programs in collaboration with our partners that support community-wide improvements to health and wellness in Burlington.
