What is the New Canaan Coalition? 

The New Canaan Coalition is the local prevention council (LPC) whose goal is to increase public awareness of the risks associated with substance use and misuse with a primary focus on youth.  New Canaan CARES runs the local LPC with input from representatives from New Canaan Public Schools, the New Canaan Police Department, the Town of New Canaan, our business and faith communities, as well as youth and parent representatives.
