Donate to CARE Coalition
We are able to conduct much of the work we do through grants made possible through the State of Nevada Department of Public and Behavioral Health. However, grant funding is not enough. We also need private donations to help us continue to support Clark County, our home.

What is the CARE Coalition?
Sectors from our community come together as one voice for the common goal: to promote a drug-free environment. Coalitions are not prevention programs or traditional human service organizations that provide direct services. Rather, we are directed by local residents and sector representatives who determine the best strategies to address substance abuse in our community.
About Care Coalition
The CARE Coalition, which was incorporated May 2011, brings together organizations and individuals who provide services and resources that help youth and families create positive and supportive environments that lead to resiliency and self-empowerment.
The CARE Coalition is a nonprofit organization that provides awareness, and education to members of the community regarding the number one health problem in Nevada: alcohol and drug abuse. The goal of the coalition is to reduce the number of first time drug users in the community and to provide a resource for at-risk individuals to build their capacity and resilience.
In 2012 the CARE Coalition granted $65,000 to two non-profit youth agencies in Clark County with money from Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA).
The Coalition has community members and partners from the youth; local business; healthcare professionals; educators; media; law enforcement; youth organizations; parents; religious, fraternal and civic organizations; schools; volunteer groups; and state, local and tribal agencies-communities.
