What We Do
The Lakes Area Community Coalition is focused on building a healthy, vibrant, drug-free community for our youth and families. We are a nonprofit serving the communities of Wixom, Walled Lake, Wolverine Lake, and Commerce Township. We use strategies for environmental change to reduce risk factors and build up protective factors around our youth to reduce the likelihood that they will be harmed by substance use and addiction. We promote health and wellness while educating about addiction and providing support to those struggling with substance use.
Interesting Info
  • We serve the Walled Lake Consolidated School District and impact 7,000+ students with our programs and the middle and high schools.
  • Our Youth Action Board of 20+ student leaders meets monthly to plan peer-to-peer support and advocacy for a healthy lifestyle without substance use.
  • Our annual Make and Move To Prevent Addiction 5k/Trail Ride in September raises funds and awareness to end addiction
