The Cortlandt Community Coalition is a group of parents, substance abuse counselors, local and county government officials, representatives from state and county police, faith based organizations, educational groups, civic organizations, PTA's, COPE, and medical organizations.
Our vision is for Cortlandt to become a culturally aware, deeply bonded community in which our children can prosper and grow into healthy resilient members of the community.
The coalition is focused on reducing underage drinking and drug use by working with community businesses and residents to change adult attitudes and behavior toward this problem.
Our current activities include: Our banner campaign which carries messages of drug/alcohol education;Youth Speak Out events which encourage youths to talk about drugs/alcohol/violence;finance State and County Police who perform DWI, party patrols and compliance checks throughout our community. All residents of Cortlandt are encouraged to join us. We meet once a month on Mondays at 3:30 PM at The Cortlandt Town Hall, 1 Heady Street, Cortlandt Manor, NY 10567. Please contact Colleen Anderson, at 734-1052, for any additional information.
