Our Purpose

We all want the best for the youth in our community because when they thrive, our community thrives. But our kids face many challenges that can prevent them from being at their best.


Our goal at the Douglas County Healthy Youth Coalition is to provide young people with the tools they need to improve their mental wellbeing, offering better coping mechanisms, community support, and education around substance misuse.
