HC3 announces website update

Staff report

Healthy Choices Caring Communities has announced the launch of its updated website, www.HC3Partnership.org.

The goal of the new website is to offer HC3 Partnership as a resource within the community for underage substance use and related issues. The new “Events” page details information on current events along with general information on the services, trainings, partnerships, and local events that are offered through the coalition.

Visitors can also get specific information on how to get involved by attending a meeting, attending an event, following the organization’s social media or inviting it to present at an event in the community. The HC3 Partnership website also features a page for the Fulton County Tip Line, SPEAKOUT, to prevent underage substance use, which provides an opportunity to create and continue a culture in which underage substance use is reported thus decreasing and preventing harm to youth.

The website’s Get Help page is formatted to direct visitors to resources for information and assistance with substance use prevention and treatment, as well as offering links to supporting community organizations.

“We are very excited to launch our new website,” said Toni Schindler, chair of the Publicity Committee. “Much time and effort was put into making sure it was user-friendly and informative for our audience.”

Now that the new website has launched, HC3 is looking for community feedback on the update. Visitors can fill out a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/hc3website, then email their contact information to [email protected] in order to enter a drawing for a free gift card.

Healthy Choices Caring Communities, an initiative of the Fulton County Family and Children First Council, is a group of community members working together to prevent and reduce underage use of alcohol and other drugs in Fulton County. To become a member of the HC3, or for more information, contact Program Director Beth Thomas at 419-337-0915 or visit www.HC3Partnership.org.
