The Madison Chatham Coalition met at the Madison Area YMCA for its monthly meeting this week to learn about the value of evaluation and data collection, presented by Kelli Keck from Epiphany Community Services.

The meeting also included a recap of training that some Coalition members attended at the National Coalition Academy in Alabama. The Coalition’s mission is to prevent and reduce youth substance use and abuse in the communities of Madison, Chatham Borough and Chatham Township through collaboration, education and community-wide change.

The Madison Chatham Coalition is funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and is a collaborative partnership between the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America.
