Through partnerships with local organizations, schools, and youth development programs, the CAN Coalition brings many sectors of the community together to serve as a resource to one another. Working together, members of CAN Coalition provide nurturing and safe spaces, foster personal development, and educate and reduce substance misuse among LGBTQ youth.
LGBTQ youth often report isolation, harassment at school, and a lack of safe spaces. They are more likely than their non-LGBTQ peers to misuse alcohol and substances.
