Preventing substance abuse. Improving lives.

The LiveWise Coalition provides a gathering place for partners to create and implement strategies and activities for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention within the community.

Meetings

Meetings are a great way to meet the prevention professionals and agency staff in the Omaha area, learn what the LiveWise partners are doing in the community, and get involved.

Each LiveWise Regional Coalition meeting dedicates time to committee work. These committees are focused on a specific area of prevention and coalition work. Anyone attending meetings is welcome to sit in on these committees as well.

Committees

 

Drug Trends
The Drug Trends Committee's focus is keeping LiveWise members updated on new trending drug and alochol issues, as well as, promoting awareness to the community about these threats.  Further the group will work to identify action steps that can be done to address rising concerns in the community.  Such action steps can include facilitating and leading prescription drug take-back events in Omaha and surrounding areas, various other community activities, including town halls, discussions, and youth leadership events.

Community Relations
The Community Relations Committee is comprised of representatives from a variety of local nonprofits and businesses, as well as individual members. The purpose of this group is to bring recognition to the LiveWise name in Omaha and the surrounding areas. The Community Relations committee is the public face of the coalition, attending health fairs and community events, welcoming new members, recruiting volunteers, placing paid media, and addressing media on drug prevention in the Omaha Metro.

Fundraising
The Fundraising Committee is comprised of representatives from the coalition who are interested in or have input for helping develop the financial sustainability of LiveWise.  This committee helps identify fundraising projects and small grant or foundation monies that are available to help support efforts of LiveWise in areas where current funding is prohibited.  Some examples are identifying non restrictive funding for LiveWise to utilize with branding materials and incentive pieces.
