“The Port Chester Community Cares Coalition is a group of individuals, invested in the community, working together in the area of the Port Chester School District to promote positive, safe, productive and healthy lives for all, through research, education, and advocacy and by focusing our resources to reduce youth substance use and other high risk behavior and promote positive outcomes."
“Port Chester is a healthy, caring and thriving community where everyone contributes to serve and benefit all.”
PCCCC began in August 2007 by the Council Of Community Services, Executive Director Ann Barringer Spaeth, with the assistance of other service providers in Port Chester such as the Open Door, Family Services of Westchester, and The Carver Center. Through the mentoring of Student Assistance Services, Port Chester Cares Community Coalition applied for a Drug Free Communities grant in March 2008 and received support in August 2008. The Drug Free Communities Support Program is a function of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) as well as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
