Our vision is to see a healthy, drug-free Williamson County.

History

In the Fall of 2011, the Williamson County Health Council completed a Community Needs Assessment. Their findings showed that substance abuse was one of the top issues that Williamson County residents were facing. They knew the only way to address this problem was to bring community sectors together to address it as a unit. The council reached out to the United Way of Williamson County to help and they assisted in writing a Developing Coalition Grant received from the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. Still today, the United Way of Williamson County is the fiscal agent and a community partner with the coalition.
