The Panhandle Prevention Coalition (PPC) is a part of the Panhandle Partnership for Health and Human Services. We are comprised of local community coalitions and a regional coalition united together by our passion and dedication to healthy and safe people across the lifespan.
Our efforts include, but are not limited to, reducing underage drinking, binge drinking, drinking and driving, tobacco prevention and prescription drug abuse in the Nebraska Panhandle. The PPC mobilizes grassroots policy change, enforcement and education with many tools and through many venues including mass media. The PPC raises awareness of current social norms and trends while seeking to change social context and individual behaviors around substance abuse.
We proudly serve the western Nebraska counties of:
- Box Butte
- Scotts Bluff
