Engaging and Working with the Faith Community

As a prevention professional, you recognize the value of building relationships within your community because prevention work cannot be done with your program staff alone. Building capacity to further the reach and impact of substance misuse prevention in your community requires providing an opportunity for the right partners to become involved in making a positive impact on substance misuse. While we recognize that a variety of partners are needed to engage in that effort, working with the faith community has specific advantages.
 

Mid-America PTTC Communities of Practice

Build the Community to Build the Capacity.

 

At the Mid-America PTTC, we believe prevention is better together and that together we are stronger.

 

It is that belief that has inspired us to launch our new Communities of Practice Series (CoP) for our Mid-America region. There are three different CoP series all designed to provide a platform for our workforce professionals to share personal inquiries, case studies, network with professionals, or to support each other.
