The Winchester Coalition For A Safer Community, housed within the Winchester Health Department, is a comprehensive community-based organization that works collaboratively with residents, town departments and agencies to reduce substance abuse, particularly in the youth community, and to foster healthy life choices through education.
The Coalition was honored to have been selected in 2014 from among more than 430 applicants during a very competitive review process, as one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each through Cummings Foundation’s $100K for 100 program. The $100K for 100 program supports nonprofits that are not only based in but also primarily serve Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. For more information about the grant program, please visit www.CummingsFoundation.org. The Coalition deeply appreciates the Cummings Foundation’s commitment to community.
The Coalition also gratefully acknowledges the generous financial support of the John and Mary Murphy Foundation, the Rotary Club of Winchester, the En Ka Society and Winchester Savings Bank.

The Coalition is pleased to announce the launch of its new Coalition Community app: “01890,” available to download for FREE through the iTunes app store
and the Google Play store.
This app provides access to the town’s anonymous Text Tip Line (managed by the Winchester Police Department) and to important community resources, including emergency contacts, hotlines, Winchester Public School information, mental and emotional health resources, as well as Coalition information. Users can dial directly from the app or access websites of Winchester schools and other key organizations.
The app was developed to serve the Winchester community by Rosanna Zhang and Qiuyue Liu, current seniors at Winchester High School.
