Community Partnerships

Summit County Community Partnership was formed in 1990 as a response to the growing drug problem in the greater Akron community. Local leaders pulled together a consortium of community resources, government entities, businesses and residents to address the effects of substance abuse in Summit County. Together, over 185 agencies, organizations and residents joined forces to offset the horrific effects of substance abuse.
