Since July 2014, Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition, a non-profit organization, has been working to promote awareness and implement resources to help make an impact on the substance abuse in our community.
The mission of the Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition is to foster a strong and inclusive community that encourages healthy, educated and responsible choices about drug and alcohol use by promoting communication and collaboration designed to meet the unique needs of Cohasset families.
This mission is supported by evidence based, prevention focused, sustainable policies and programs. Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition operates under the auspices of the Social Service League of Cohasset and is strategically guided by a 7 member steering committee.
The comprehensive coalition includes senior leadership from the school department, representatives from local law enforcement, fire department, town government, members of the faith, the medical, and recovery communities, mental health professionals and parents.
Donations made to Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition are used to purchase educational materials, sponsor community events and provide facts, resources and support to help prevent substance misuse. Safe Harbor events are free and open to the public, to encourage all to attend, without financial obligation.
