Who are we?
The Casa Grande Alliance is a community coalition formed in 1989. Coalitions provide a framework for organizations, families and individuals to address substance abuse issues in the community. Members of the CG Alliance include over 50 individuals and agencies who share a vision of a safe and drug-free community. We serve Pinal County, Arizona, focusing primarily on Casa Grande and the surrounding communities.
Funding for CG Alliance activities comes largely from grants from the Arizona Parents Commission, Cenpatico of Arizona, and the United Way of Pinal County.
