Norfolk Prevention Coalition (NPC)
Norfolk Prevention Coalition, formerly known as, Norfolk Prevention Network (NPN), had undergone a needs assessment in 2015.
Prior to that time, the network convened regularly to discuss prevention initiatives within the City of Norfolk. During the time of assessment, NPN was a community collaborative, led by professionals. However, at the conclusion of the Needs Assessment, NPN had undergone a name change and service tagline.
NPC’s mission to develop a comprehensive and city-wide prevention strategy and continuum of evidence based services to strength and improve outcomes for Norfolk families.
While promoting Drug-free communities, Norfolk Prevention Coalition seeks to engage all community sectors to work together to reduce use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
NPC collaborates with local and regional agencies to provide prevention education on substance use and abuse to parents and other community members.
