Southside Urban Coalition
The Southside Urban Coalition is a Drug Free Communities coalition funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Focused on preventing youth substance use in south Minneapolis, the SUC strives to make the community a healthy and safe place. We welcome anyone who is invested in the south Minneapolis community, is involved with preventing youth substance use, or who wants to make a difference.
Current projects underway at The Southside Urban Coalition include: preventing youth tobacco use, marijuana risk awareness, prevention of underage drinking and addressing the rise in heroin use. SUC also has an innovative program for youth, called “Southside Rise.” For more information about any of these programs, upcoming events, strategies for substance abuse prevention and about The Southside Urban Coalition, visit their website at: http://www.southsidedrugfree.org
