The Winnebago County Task Force serves the County of Winnebago, focusing on School Districts of Forest City, Lake Mills and North Iowa. The Coalition is made up of volunteers from 12 different sectors in the community: Youth, Parents, Business Community, Media, Schools, Youth Service Organizations, Local Law Enforcement, Spiritual Organizations, Civic/Volunteer Groups, Healthcare, Local Government Agencies and others that are concerned about our youth. The Coalition is set up for each sector to retain their own identity but agree to work together towards a common goal of building safe, healthy and drug-free communities.
Maintaining the vision of a safe and substance abuse-free environment for youth, the purpose of the Winnebago County Task Force is to strengthen and develop partnerships in Winnebago County to prevent and intervene with substance abuse and its risk factors through the creation of a multifaceted Coalition consisting of representatives of the community, service providers, policy makers and funders.
Our Coalition is set up for each sector to retain their own identity but agree to work together towards a common goal of building safe, healthy and drug-free communities. Each coalition member decides how much time and which projects that they would like to contribute to, and there are numerous opportunities for involvement. Visit our Get Involved page to see how!
