The Burlington Partnership for a Healthy Community is a Burlington-focused coalition of diverse community partners working collaboratively to address the causes and consequences of substance misuse. BPHC’s work prevents and delays youth use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs through innovative programming and community level strategies. We improve overall health and safety–making healthier choices the easy ones. NFI supports and promotes the work and mission of BPHC as a fiscal agent, and we help provide administrative and HR resources for the program.
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.
