Mission / Heritage



Vision Statement:

Stoughton is a healthy, vibrant community.

Mission Statement:
The Stoughton Wellness Coalition strives to promote healthy lifestyle choices and reduce youth substance use.

Heritage:
The Stoughton community was devastated by a tornado in the summer of 2005. Following this disaster, several groups began to meet informally to discuss the needs of the community, as well as how to assess and meet those needs. Leaders from City government, Stoughton Hospital and Stoughton Area School District each designated staff to begin a planning process for better coordination of services and resources available. These individuals formed the leadership group for the current coalition.

In 2006 the Stoughton Wellness Coalition (SWC) was formed to focus on the health and wellness of the community, and youth substance use prevention. In September 2008 SWC held the first medication disposal and sharps take-back, as its launching event. Since then the group has continued to organize two such events annually, staffed by community volunteers. In the years since, SWC has hosted, supported, or participated in community health fairs, town hall meetings, youth alternative activity nights, presentations to city leaders and legislators and public awareness campaigns.

In 2015 SWC entered into a Drug Free Communities Mentoring grant with Building A Safer Evansville (BASE). BASE guided SWC in organizational planning, capacity building, conducting a community assessment and extensive training. This grant also allowed SWC to hire a Project Coordinator to facilitate the goals of the grant, including building capacity of the coalition by recruiting additional members, strategic action planning and applying for additional grants. In 2017 the Stoughton Wellness Coalition was awarded a five-year Drug Free Communities Implementation grant and is working on strategies to prevent youth substance use.
