Taskforces

What is a Community Task Force?

Once a need or problem is  identified, typically a community task force is formed to address it.  These task forces are work groups comprised of community members and agencies that work toward resolving the problem.

The task force usually follows the public health model for  community change that is  utilized in the  Communities Mobilizing for Change on  Alcohol (CMCA)  process.  This is an evidence based process proven to produce the necessary community changes, which includes agency collaboration, community education, social marketing and policy changes.

The Morgan County Partnership facilitates the underage drinking prevention, prescription drug abuse prevention task forces.  However, there are other agency task forces being led by other community groups.  To learn more about getting involved, contact us at 304-258-7807.
