About Us

Who we are

Northwestern Prevention Collaborative is a partnership among four substance abuse coalitions in the Lord Fairfax Planning District, representing the City of Winchester and the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah, and Warren. Focusing on the heroin/opioid epidemic, the collaborative is the first in Virginia’s Northwestern region to combine prevention and treatment, with the dual goals of preventing young people from abusing prescription drugs and reducing the number of heroin/prescription drug overdose deaths.

Family Youth Initiative

The Family Youth Initiative (FYI) was originally established in 1987 by concerned community members. It wasn’t until 2002 that Shenandoah County adopted the name, “Family Youth Initiative.”

In 2010, FYI received a Drug Free Communities (DFC) Grant which has been and will continue to be utilized to provide prevention and education surrounding alcohol and substance abuse in families in Shanandoah County. Through the grant, FYI is able to establish more prevention and education programs by networking with community partners and volunteers.

We work to provide a healthy, drug-free environment for those in our community. With the volunteers in our coalition, the funding from state and foundation grants, we have focused our attention on preventing substance abuse among our youth and combating childhood obesity with physical activities and nutritional education.



Warren Coalition

Warren County Community Health Coalition – Warren Coalition – is a nonprofit agency established in 1994 to help fill the gaps in health care and substance abuse awareness to the community. The Coalition began under the guidance of Warren Memorial Hospital as an outreach project, but has since grown and was incorporated in 2001.  The office is currently located in the Warren County Community Center.  We continue to work towards making Warren County a safe, healthy, and drug free community through the many programs we provide.
