Who is KCPC?

The Kent County Prevention Coalition (KCPC) is a team of 25+ member organizations who all share a genuine concern for improving the health & wellness of the community.  We band together to change community conditions, norms, systems and policies in a variety of creative ways.

Our purpose is to prevent & reduce substance use behaviors in Kent County with a focus on youth.  We are intentional about our work.  We are committed to being visible, valuable and vocal in the work of substance abuse prevention.

The work of the coalition is about people, passion, partnerships and performance.  We achieve our goals by taking prevention to culture.  Rather urban, suburban, or rural, we impact where people work, live, play, learn and worship.  We know PREVENTION WORKS!
