The Greater Rockingham County Regional Network has just released its three-year strategic plan, which was recently submitted to the New Hampshire Bureau for Drug and Alcohol Services and the NH Charitable Foundation for funding consideration and implementation planning for future substance abuse prevention efforts in the region.

This document is one of ten that was submitted on behalf of all communities across NH.  This strategic plan will be looked to as the driving force behind substance abuse prevention related work and funding in the 28 communities it represents.  The plan is a result of eight months worth of a collaborative and community based strategic planning process which included core teams of 7-15 people from the region representing various key sectors in the community.

These teams guided a data driven, comprehensive, and community participatory process which analyzed quantitative and qualitative data, identified priority goals and objectives, determined relevant strategies, sought out existing resources, and developed a financial plan in order to achieve measurable results for substance abuse prevention and community wellness for youth and families across Greater Rockingham County.

The document is particularly important to the work of United Way of the Greater Seacoast, which invests in substance abuse prevention for youth in the region, specifically Allies in  Substance Abuse Prevention.
