The Jefferson County Community Network is a prevention advocacy organization. We bring agencies, schools, community groups and parents together to work on preventing child abuse/neglect and youth substance abuse. We are part of a DSHS agency called the Family Policy Council, which works with Networks in other counties and represents us at the state level. We are also Jefferson County's policy board for the Washington State Community Mobilization program. The Community Network is governed by a policy board consisting of citizen volunteers and representatives from local agencies.
We work to promote healthy children, healthy families and a healthy community.

Jefferson County Substance Abuse Advisory Board Tells Residents About the Staggering Cost of Substance Abuse in the County
Funding for the Jefferson County Community Network provided by:
Washington State's Community Mobilization Program:
Effective prevention of alcohol, tobacco, drug use, and violence requires communities to become organized and strongly motivated to meet the challenge. Successful prevention efforts require that a community find a structure and process that encourages a variety of independent, local organizations to cooperate effectively in the delivery of prevention services. In Washington State that structure and process is the CM model.
Washington State's Family Policy Council:
The Family Policy Council is a family-community-state partnership that engages communities to prevent child abuse and neglect, youth substance abuse and other major social problems.
