Wilkin County We Care Coalition

The mission of Wilkin County We Care Coalition is to prevent and reduce youth substance abuse and to encourage youth to make healthy, safe decisions. We are a task force of community members all interested in making the communities of Wilkin County a safe and healthy place for our youth. Because we work to prevent and reduce substance abuse in our youth through community collaboration, we need involvement and help from all the sectors of the community. We do this by performing alcohol and tobacco retailer compliance checks, offering leadership trainings and workshops for youth, providing substance-free, family-friendly community events like our popular “Movies In The Park”, curriculum and education in our schools and many more opportunities. It truly does take a village! We invite you to join us for a meeting. We meet the second Thursday of every month at 9:30am at the Wilkin County Recycling Center Community Room. Come join us!
