Chittenden Prevention Network (CPN)
Chittenden Prevention Network (CPN) is a group of five community coalitions focused on preventing substance abuse and misuse. With representation from Burlington, Charlotte, Essex, Hinesburg, Milton, Saint George, Shelburne, Williston, and Winooski, our organizations join together using collective impact to foster greater change and support healthy communities. Our mission is to work together to strengthen the collective impact of efforts across Chittenden County to support healthy communities and prevent substance misuse.
In 2013 the group jointly applied to and received a Partnership for Success Grant overseen by the Vermont Department of Health and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. This grant provides funding and a focus for the groups work, specifically working to address youth empowerment, prescription drug issues, and alcohol abuse in Chittenden County.
