Orting Standing Together on Prevention
A Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) Coalition
Our mission is to cultivate a healing community for those impacted by life challenges through community prevention and wellness initiatives.
The Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) is a strategic, data-informed, community coalition model aimed at preventing youth alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, opioids, and other drug use by targeting prevention efforts in the highest risk communities throughout the state. The CPWI model uses a data-informed, community-level decision making process to determine root social and emotional causes that predict problem behaviors. CPWI provides community coalitions with funding, training and technical assistance for coordination, assessment, strategic planning, implementation, and evaluation of prevention services needed in their communities.
