Who We Are
The Quality of Life Coalition consists of over 60 different agencies including schools, local governments, health providers, recreational and youth serving organizations, social services, volunteers and concerned individuals. These groups network through monthly community forum meetings where they can share information, discover opportunities to collaborate and reduce duplication of services.
Guided by MAPP results, QLC focuses on population-based outreach community programs including early childhood initiatives such as social-emotional development for young children, planning and initiatives to ensure kindergarten success, underage drinking prevention, healthy community design initiatives, and an annual compilation of local community resources for families.
