A youth coalition on a mission to stop substance misuse and reduce the stigma around mental health is turning to local communities for funding after losing a federal grant that supported the organization for years.
The Southern Rockingham County Coalition for Healthy Youth, also known as SoRock, has reached out to several communities in recent weeks to seek support.
After its federal funding expired on Sept. 30, SoRock operated on an extension through December.
The organization’s coordinator position and costs for January are being funded through a small reserve of previous non-federal grants and donations.
