Could you imagine what life would be like if Hunterdon and Somerset Counties were drug-free communities, free of the risks of underage drinking problems and drug abuse?

That is the goal of Safe Communities Coalition.

About Us

“Hunterdon Safe Homes” was formed to address parents providing alcohol to minors in 2003.  We developed the SAFE HOMES directory in Hunterdon County, where parents could identify themselves as parents committed to hosting alcohol-free gatherings for their teens.  The SAFE HOMES directory is now online with more than 1000 members!

In 2009, with the resources from the federal Drug Free Communities grant, “Safe Homes” changed it’s name to the “Safe Communities Coalition” in order to widen our reach and add more drugs to our mission.

In 2011, the successful efforts of the Coalition expanded once again.  “HOPE Project of Hunterdon/Somerset” merged with us, providing coverage of Somerset County as well.
