Prevention & Community Engagement

Building stronger Long Island communities, together.


FCA’s Prevention & Community Engagement division focuses on providing Long Island youth with the language, tools, and skills needed to become prevention-minded, civically engaged, socially conscious, and successful.


Our division is made up of skilled substance use and violence prevention professionals who work collaboratively with community partners from all 12 sectors of community to provide services and evidence-based training for individuals, families, and schools, as well as community partners.
