Comprehensive community action is the answer to America's drug problem. Community anti-drug coalitions throughout the United States are successfully developing and implementing comprehensive, long-term strategies to reduce substance abuse. By utilizing multiple strategies across multiple sectors of the community we are able to change the environment and norms for that community. We approach prevention as a healthy lifestyle choice and recognize the importance of reaching youth and adults to promote this goal. Evaluation is a key component of our organizational structure. We are data driven and do extensive needs assessments to find out where there are problems and then implement programs to meet these needs, following up with an evaluation as to whether the programming was effective.
Mrs. Ann Marie Comiskey
Ann M. Comiskey, Executive Director of the Troy Community Coalition believes it is better to build a child than repair an adult since assuming the position four years ago this has become her passion. She holds a BA from the University of Michigan and MA from Oakland University. Having worked in an educational setting for over 22 years and a social services setting for the 10 years she has first hand knowledge of the devastation drug abuse and dependency can cause to a person, family and community. As the leader of the Troy Community Coalition she brings her past work experience, education volunteer involvement and organizational skills all into play. Her goal is to continue the work of the Troy Community Coalition in promoting a lifestyle free from the abuse of alcohol and drugs. It is her desire that every resident in Troy will look to the Coalition as the catalyst for making Troy a happier and healthier place to live and work. Ann is a Leader/Mentor and Trainer for the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) Institute, the Co-chair of the Prevention Coalition of Southeast Michigan (PREVCO), the Chair of the Troy Chamber of Commerce Non-Profit Network, a member of the Board of Directors of the Troy Chamber of Commerce, and Vice President of the Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities. She also serves on the Advisory Board for the Strategic Prevention Framwork State Incentive Grant and is a member of the Oakland County Suicide Prevention Coalition. She is also a member of several other community and civic organizations in Troy.
Since joining the Troy Community Coalition in 2002 it has been both humbling and heartwarming to see how valued our organization has become to both individuals and institutions alike. Our community supports the Coalition's mission and even in tough economic times recognizes the importance of our work to the overall quality of life in Troy. We believe we have become part of the fabric that has enabled Troy to be named the safest community in the state and the 6th safest city in the nation.
