What are community Coalitions?
Community coalitions are made up of community partners and local advocates, who are working at the local level to make a difference in their communities.

The Clinton RPC covers Beckham, Blaine, Caddo, Custer, Dewey, Greer, Kiowa, Roger Mills, and Washita Counties. Below are the meetings that we attend on a monthly basis (listed in previous email-let me know if I need to send again). Please join us at any of our meetings. Be a partner in our efforts to help safely dispose of, use and store your medications to help keep your community and family safer as well as take part in activities that will prevent our local youth from engaging in underage alcohol use like alcohol compliance checks.
The Partnership for Success Grant (PFS) covers Grady County and focuses on the non-medical use of prescription drugs. If you are interested, join us at our monthly Community Data Workgroup meetings and become a partner in our prevention efforts to help keep the community safe by safely using, safely storing, and safely disposing of your medications.
Some encouraging words from people who have participated in our meetings and with our programs.
"We partner with the CDW to gain insight on what is happening in Grady County. From this partnership we have become educated in the prescription drug prevention efforts and also provide a safer method of storing the prescription drugs our kids use in our programs."
Executive Director, Chickasha YMCA
The Canadian County Coalition values the partnership with Red Rock RPC for the work they do to support healthy living for all citizens of Canadian County.
