Better Brodhead receives funding and support from many sources, including:
The Drug-Free Communities Program (DFC)
Better Brodhead was awarded a five-year Drug Free Communities Program grant in 2016. This Federal grant program provides funding to community-based coalitions that focus on youth substance use prevention. The philosophy behind the DFC Program is that local drug problems require local solutions. Funding is focused on environmental strategies implemented within the Brodhead School District area.
Brodhead Area Community Foundation
Better Brodhead was awarded a grant in 2016 to implement the Strengthening Families Program. Strengthening Families is an evidence based program for families with children age 10-14.
Alliance for Wisconsin Youth
The Alliance for Wisconsin Youth (AWY) brings together coalitions, individuals and resources for a common goal that affects young people through the promotion of positive youth development. This goal of preventing substance abuse and behavioral health concerns is supported by over 90 AWY coalition’s members with the mission and focus to enhance and support those Alliance coalitions in their prevention efforts and youth development work. Better Brodhead receives funds to enhance local efforts. Funds received from AWY expand the reach of prevention efforts beyond the Brodhead School District area.
The community has been very generous in its donations toward an annual community supper that is used as a platform for an educational prevention event.
