The Catoosa Prevention Initiative’s (CaPI) primary focus is to create and nurture a community coalition, which will eventually include prevention strategies for all substances of abuse. We are striving to create a movement where “prevention” and “treatment” providers in our county and surrounding areas meet in the middle, providing each other with support and filling needs where there are gaps. We are also working to create an environmental change that will impact our community at large, stimulating healthy families and lives.

 

In response to the ongoing recovery needs of the over 600 households affected by the severe storms and tornado on April 27, 2011, Catoosa County COAD dedicates itself to assisting families and individuals impacted by the disaster through coordinating the many ongoing aspects of recovery including assessment, case management, assistance and repair/ rebuilding.

Partnership began in 1988 and is sponsored by the Catoosa County Board of Education. The school system and the community had a genuine desire to lower the county’s dropout rate.  Through collaborative efforts with our local business, community, and school sectors, as well as our county’s Communities In Schools program and The Family Collaborative, our goal is to continue our growth in all areas to allow us to meet all the needs of our students and work hard to cooperatively enhance the overall education of those young people.
