COVID-19 Update

We fully believe in the science and power of prevention. That’s why Prevent Coalition is following social distancing guidelines during this global pandemic. Our staff are working from home and creating innovative ways to conduct business, connect community and support youth. All meetings will take place virtually and large-scale events are cancelled until the state provides clearance to meet again. We will update this notice when changes to these practices are made. Visit the ESD 112 COVID-19 page for resources, and the Washington State COVID website for information directly from the source.

About Prevent Coalition

Prevent is a youth substance abuse prevention coalition working for healthy, thriving, and substance-free communities in Clark, Klickitat and Skamania counties. Prevent implements initiatives for rural communities across Washington State.

Prevent has been connecting and supporting communities since 2003. Efforts are funded by state and federal grants, made possible by volunteers like you.

Dispose Meds Safely

Unwanted medications can be disposed of year-round at several collection sites across Clark County.
