Our Mission: To mobilize community resources in an effort to reduce the harmful impact of alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse in our youth within our communities.
BACODA has five community coalitions working to affect change: South East Harris County Community Coalition, Pasadena Community Coalition, Brazoria County Community Coalition, Galveston County Community Coalition, and Tri-County Community Coalition, which serves Matagorda, Wharton, and Fort Bend Counties.
Each coalition is unique and responds to the specific issues and concerns of their target area.
The agencies, organizations and individuals that support each community are the backbone of each coalition.
Members all commit their time, their energy, and their hearts to create safer schools, safer neighborhoods and safer communities for youth.
