Because TEEN Brains Matter!

The Okanogan County Community Coalition

The Okanogan County Community Coalition, OCCC, has been working in Okanogan County to reduce youth substance abuse and violence for over a decade.

            The Coalition membership consists of over 30 dedicated community members who are passionate about making the communities they work and live in better places.  

            The OCCC meets on the second Thursday of every month at Omak City Hall - at noon.  Meetings are open to the public.

            The Coalition membership representation is as diverse as Okanogan County itself.  With members from business, school districts/education, faith based groups, health care providers, parents, youth, media, law enforcement, elected officials, non profit agencies, and a whole host of other community sectors.

           We are funded by a variety of funding sources including: private donations, foundation funds, fee-based services, State and Federal grants.

            Our Mission Statement is; “To effectively address the problems of substance abuse and violence by promoting: Collaboration, Cooperation, Communication, Commitment, and Cultural Competency.”
