Communities that Care Project 

Creating a Safe School Infrastructure 
While many violence prevention strategies are effective alone, their value is greater when they are combined. Moreover, effective drug and violence prevention education programs must involve all members of a community.  Schools alone cannot solve the problem. Learning at home about remaining nonviolent is very important, of course, but school and community programs are also valuable partners. 

The Albion Public Schools has formed a Violence Free School Committee.  This committee consists of interested community members and the Assistant Superintendent.  Meetings are held monthly and the committee reports to the Superintendent.  Results of evaluation will be reported annually and shared at school board meetings.  The plan will be reviewed and updated annually. 
Substance Abuse Prevention Partnerships 

 Albion Prevention  Network 
The  Albion Prevention  Network is a community based partnership of representatives from local community organizations who come together regularly to discuss and act on specific local issues and concerns as they affect a wide range of substance abuse related problems and conditions.
