Our Coalition has served Barron County as a whole since 1989.


Our primary goals are to:

  • Reduce and prevent substance use among youth

  • Collaborate & expand resources to support community members

  • Provide awareness of community needs

  • Develop healthy community environments and systems

We focus on environmental strategies and system changes to create sustainable, healthier environments in our communities. We have successfully brought in well over a million dollars in prevention monies, achieved significant reductions in youth substance use and other youth risk

behaviors. We were awarded the honor of "Outstanding Prevention Coalition" in 2014. 

Mission Statement

The Barron County Community Coalition builds community partnerships to promote family strength and stability for the development of sustainable, healthy communities.


The Barron County Community Coalition promises to provide support to the communities of Barron County to make our county the best place to raise a family! 


In 1989 the Barron County Adolescent
Health Council was established. Over the
next decade the Council expanded, and in
2001 became the Barron County Safe &
Stable Families Coalition.
