We currently have many volunteers, several community partner organizations, and multiple town departments that meet monthly to discuss implementation and direction of our community-wide prevention initiative.
A Healthy Lynnfield is a partnership between the Town of Lynnfield and a community-based 501(c) 3. We are governed by a community Board of Directors that represent multiple organizations, residents, and town departments. A Healthy Lynnfield helps create a community plan for substance use prevention and raises funds to support this work across town departments and the community at large. The Town of Lynnfield has received 2 federal substance use prevention grants that support the work of the community coalition.
