We work together for a happier, healthier Sullivan County.

Communities United is an umbrella organization made up of businesses, community support organizations, government and law enforcement, and nonprofit organizations. We are united in our commitment to work for a stronger, healthier community. We know alcohol and drug abuse hurts families and drains our communities of valuable resources.

We work together to provide information, strengthen resources, and support healthy behavior. As you explore our website, you’ll learn more about what we do, our community partners, and how you can help your family and community.
