Membership Expectations

The Gateway ImpACT Coalition is a community coalition. Often, community problems or issues are too large and complex for any one agency or organization. In those circumstances, putting together a coalition of groups and individuals can be an effective strategy for bringing the community's resources to bear, and getting everyone moving in the same direction. The Gateway ImpACT Coalition is a group of individuals and/or organizations with a common interest who agree to work together toward a common goal.  

Purpose: Coordinating and empowering Clinton community area’s effort to keep our communities healthy, safe, and drug free.

Vision: To create a community free from unhealthy use and abuse of substances.

Mission: The Gateway ImpACT Coalition, through collaboration, works to develop solutions to community problems that are related to the unhealthy use and abuse of substances through the process of facilitation, cooperation, education, and communication.
