Annual Community Survey is OPEN — Wellness Promotion

Posted September 16, 2021 at 5:42 am by

This sur­vey pro­vides the San Juan Island Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion (SJIPC) with some local infor­ma­tion about com­mu­ni­ty per­cep­tions and to look at it as one point of data ref­er­ence. We use this along with the Healthy Youth Sur­vey, school inter­ven­tion data that the Stu­dent Assis­tant Pro­fes­sion­al col­lects, and the pro­gram assess­ments for the pro­grams that the SJIPC helps to fund:

  • Com­mu­ni­ty Based Men­tor­ing and Strength­en­ing Fam­i­lies pro­vid­ed by the Joyce L. Sobel Fam­i­ly Resource Cen­ter, Sec­ond Step in the ele­men­tary school
  • LifeSkills Train­ing in Grade 6 at FHMS
  • and the SAP (Stu­dent Assis­tance Pro­fes­sion­al, for­mer­ly the Pre­ven­tion Inter­ven­tion Spe­cial­ist, a full-time posi­tion) that pro­vides full-time pre­ven­tion inter­ven­tion sup­port at the mid­dle and high schools through sup­port of the NWESD’s and the Coalition’s CPWI (Com­mu­ni­ty Pre­ven­tion and Well­ness Ini­tia­tive) partnership.

Most impor­tant­ly, CPWI has helped the SJIPC to sup­port the growth of youth lead­er­ship pre­ven­tion clubs: Rock Sol­id, HOTS, and HOT, Jr. The SJIPC has a robust social media pres­ence that links to nation­al, region­al, and state pub­lic aware­ness campaigns.

Please com­plete this sur­vey to help the SJIPC gain con­tin­ued sup­port through the WA Health Care Authority’s Com­mu­ni­ty Pre­ven­tion and Well­ness Ini­tia­tive, which invests in our com­mu­ni­ty by for­mal­iz­ing and sup­port­ing coor­di­na­tion of com­mu­ni­ty-based deci­sion making.

San Juan Island Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion was found­ed in Decem­ber 2003, and began receiv­ing fed­er­al Drug-Free Com­mu­ni­ties fund­ing in 2004, and had the ben­e­fit of that sup­port for ten years. SJIPC has been able to sus­tain its work through CPWI fund­ing, a mix of fed­er­al block grant fund­ing (Sub­stance Abuse Block Grant/SABG), and state Ded­i­cat­ed Mar­i­jua­na Account (DMA) dol­lars. As a CPWI coali­tion, the SJIPC also have been able to receive fed­er­al Part­ner­ship for Suc­cess (PFS) sup­ple­men­tal funds that helped them to pilot the very suc­cess­ful Sec­ond Step pro­gram in grades K‑5. Thank you for com­plet­ing this short 5‑minute survey.
