This committee develops and implements a prevention plan every two years and recommends funding targeted at projects and programs identified in this plan.
The Sherman County Prevention Coalition collaborates with a number of agencies and organizations, non-profits, the faith community, businesses and other entities to prevent problematic use of addictive substances including tobacco, alcohol, drugs and gambling.
