'IN-FOCUS' Student Programs

FOCUS is based on a student-led approach that promotes school and community partnerships for the prevention of adolescent risk behaviors identified in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Addiction Prevention Coalition (APC) aims to show that substance abuse is a deadly epidemic. APC hopes to lessen the shame and hopelessness of those who are struggling, and provide education and connection to enable people to find or maintain wholeness, safety, and sobriety. Through the Drug Free Coalition (DFC) Grant Funding, APC hopes to provide prevention and awareness in the school system, offer prevention education programs to parents, and in the workplace, and help individuals in recovery share their story in the school systems, with parents, and throughout the community.

Using funds from Foundations, Local Grants, Individual Donors and the Drug Free Community (DFC) Federal Grant, APC seeks to provide awareness of the addiction problem, provide prevention education through programs in the schools, and assists those seeking connection by providing them with relevant, local resources. In order to create a Coalition in the community, APC holds events such as the END HEROIN BHAM Walk to provide awareness and connection in the community. To engage and empower community members, APC provides a resource directory, holds Parents of Addicted Loved Ones group meetings in the community, and offers parenting education and student programs.

The Addiction Prevention Coalition (APC) uses staff, volunteers, collaborations, and funding to be a beacon of hope in the fight for recovery. Funding from Federal, State and Local providers offers APC the ability to provide awareness, prevention, and connection in the fight to end the epidemic of drug addiction. APC provides education and prevention through the INFOCUS Student Programs throughout the Birmingham area schools for students from elementary to high school. To promote prevention, APC also engages in Student Initiatives, Parenting for Prevention Seminars, and Workplace/Athletic Teams Prevention Seminars. APC holds the END HEROIN BHAM Walk to give the community a place to commemorate those lost in the drug epidemic as well as support for those in any step of the recovery process. APC builds awareness through other activities such as Wake-Up/Community breakfasts, exhibitor booths at Health Fairs and Conferences, talks at Leadership Birmingham, PTA Conference, workplaces and schools across the community. APC provides connection through Calls for Help in which staff and volunteers fielded over 100 calls last year directing people to recovery resources, Parents of Addicted Loved Ones, Birmingham City School Coalition, which has 12 sector reps meet every 2 months working on Environmental strategies around our DFC Schools, and providing a resource directory.

Addiction Prevention Coalition (APC) was awarded Year 6-10 of the Drug Free Communities (DFC) Award. We are the only Coalition in Alabama to receive funding in 2018. The END HEROIN BHAM Walk has established new alliances with a number of key people and organization such as the Attorney General, UAB Beacon Recovery, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office and served 7500 people over the past 2 years. The 2018 Corporate Breakfast fundraising goal of 125,000 was met. APC is also Prevention Certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health and is a recipient of the AmeriCorps VISTA Grant.

Within the next fiscal year, APC prepares to reach and engage at least 10 businesses in Prevention Partners Education, expand our reach in schools by 2, and continue Positive Action, our elementary school program, to at least 2 schools.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
