Novi Community Coalition
Posted By: Debbie Wertz (August 12, 2019)
Novi Community Coalition (NCC) is a non-profit organization who strengthens youth and families while promoting a healthier community through prevention, education, wellness, and support. The prevention strategies can be for one person, one family, and/or the whole community making a lasting impact promoting protective factors through education and interactive activities.
This summer we partnered with and held presentations on various topics:
Novi Feed the Need
MSU Tollgate Farm
Novi Youth Assistance
We have also made 100 Coping Tool Boxes promoting coping skills. The kit includes a stress ball, bubbles, task cards, play-dough, resources, coloring pages with pencils, and a plush sensory item. At Feed-the-Need a presentation was given to parents on stress and coping while a short presentation was given to youth teaching them about stress and empowering the youth to self regulate. All our programs are given to the community for free.
