Some Coalition accomplishments...
Social Host Accountability Ordinance Passes!
July 25, 2017
With support from Texans Standing Tall, the Here 2 Impact (H2i) Coalition helped pass the Social Host Accountability Ordinance (SHO) in the city of Odessa on July 25, 2017. At the time, H2i was a coalition under the umbrella of PBRCADA. The SHO holds adults accountable for providing a place that allows underage drinking to occur, be it a home, hotel room, banquet hall, etc. This ordinance is a criminal offense with a fine no less than $250 and not to exceed $2,000.

Medication Drop Boxes
The Midessa Community Alliance Coalition also provides support with local law enforcement agencies to offer medication drop boxes throughout the community of Midland/Odessa. These drop boxes allow the community to dispose of unwanted or expired medications at a safe location. Data is also extracted from these drop boxes, showing how many pounds of medication are collected each month.
