About Council Rock Coalition for Healthy Youth

We are concerned community members whose mission is to mobilize and engage all sectors of our communities to work together to reduce risk behaviors of our youth, helping them to reach their full potential in a healthy environment.

We have been serving the Council Rock School District and the neighboring communities for over 12 years as an all-volunteer organization. In 2009, CRCHY was awarded a federally-funded Drug Free Communities grant which provided the opportunity to expand programs and services, all of which support reducing risk behaviors and increasing protective factors to help our youth reach their full potential by making healthy decisions. The principal focus is on the prevention of ATOD abuse (alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs).

Newtown Borough | Newtown Township | Northampton Township
Upper Makefield Township | Wrightstown Township


CRCHY partners with many groups in the community to achieve this end:  health care, schools, parents, volunteer organizations, youth organization such as SADD chapters, faith-based institutions, government,  law enforcement, business, and the media. Both youth and parents are served by CRCHY initiatives.
