We have changed the layout of our website. There are several programs that occur every month. Those programs have been moved to a page called “ONGOING PROGRAMS”.
The “HOME” page will now be used to inform you of programs that are of a temporary nature. Our hope is to provide a less cluttered, easier to navigate website.

The Ashtabula County Prevention Coalition seeks to work with the community to promote and support healthy lifestyles for all residents and to eliminate underage use and harmful use of drugs and alcohol. To be successful, the Coalition needs the opinions and the involvement of our residents. If you are a resident of Ashtabula County, Ohio, age 18 or older, please take 5-10 minutes to complete the following survey.
Your answers are anonymous and confidential and will be added to those from several hundred other responses by Ashtabula County residents. There is no way for your personal answers to be linked to you and only the total results will be analyzed and shared. Your opinion is very important to us! Thank you in advance for taking your time to help us with this project.
If you would like information about the Coalition, please contact Kaitie Park, Coalition Coordinator at 440-992-3121.

Importance of Hearing Testing
It is medically recommended to have your hearing tested annually, just like your blood pressure or cholesterol. Adults with untreated hearing loss are more likely to develop dementia. Hearing loss is not just an ear issue, it is also a quality of life issue, a health issue and safety issue.Hearing loss can occur naturally due to age, but it can also be caused by other health reasons that may surprise you. Some other health issues that are directly linked to hearing loss include, but are not limited to: diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and osteoporosis. It has also been found that untreated hearing loss can lead to a very quiet, isolated life while possibly causing anxiety, depression and paranoia.
Country Neighbor needs donations of the following items:
• Any color or type of card-stock
• Straight pins
• Lace or ribbon
• Fabric (odds and ends are perfect!)
• Fake flowers
• Quilling tools
• Tweezers or craft pliers
• Embroidery hoops
• Hot glue sticks
• Salt and pepper shakers
• Small flower vases
• Tea sets
