Who We Are...
Communities 4 Action is a regional resource to support local initiatives. We provide information on substance misuse across the lifespan, speakers, trainings, evidence-based programs, legislative efforts, funding sources, coalition building, evaluation tools and community-based initiatives in both English and Spanish. We also facilitate regional collaborations to address gaps and strengthen local initiatives.
Communities 4 Action is a proud member of the Connecticut Prevention Network. We have a number of resources (e.g.videos, games, display charts) that anyone can borrow.
