Our Mission

The South Bay Coalition provides prevention education and informational services about substance abuse, influences community standards, supports positive alternative activities, encourages healthy role modeling, supports intervention and treatment services, and develops sustained community participation. We aim to increase community collaboration in providing prevention services, ensure a continuum of services throughout the community, strive to reduce duplication of services and improve community well being. The South Bay Coalition is a grass-roots collaboration of local agencies, school districts, community-based organizations, youth, and other individuals who are concerned with youth substance use.

The first-ever Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health reviews what we know about substance misuse and how you can use that knowledge to address substance misuse andrelated consequences.


About Us

The South Bay Coalition was originally established in 1987 out of a growing concern about alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use by youth in the South Bay. The Coalition membership is comprised of representatives from schools, community based organizations, churches, parents, youth, civic organizations, law enforcement, city councils, and business and industry.

Serving the community by:

  • Providing a forum for community members and opportunities to network, discuss the issues, influence community standards and affect policy change.
  • Improving the quality and reducing the duplication of services. People are less likely to fall through the cracks.
