Have you heard about Galveston County Community Coalition's Happiness
The “Happiness Projects” are funded by a supplemental grant from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. The intent of the projects is to bring joy and reduce stress to the community.
Who we are:
Galveston County Community Coalition (GCCC) exists to serve as a community-wide effort aiming to prevent and reduce the harmful impact of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse in youth within our communities. We implement these efforts by utilizing community-based, environmental prevention strategies. These strategies are research and scientifically based and are proven to work on a national and local level.
GCCC relies on effective community partnerships and collaborations to effect change in community norms and perceptions, access and availability, and policies and regulations. Some of these strategies include: outreach and education, reducing underage drinking by conducting compliance checks and responsible beverage service campaigns to retailers, and positive messaging campaigns, only to name a few.
GCCC serves the following communities:
Galveston Island, Santa Fe, La Marque, Dickinson, Hitchcock, Kemah, Texas City, Friendswood, Seabrook, and Clear Lake Shores.
GCCC serves the following community sectors: business community, civic and volunteer groups, concerned citizen, faith community, government agencies, health care professionals, law enforcement, media, parents, recovery community, schools and educators, young adults (aged 18–24), youth (younger than 18), and youth-serving community organizations.
