Jackson County Program Information


COMBAT has been supporting agencies offering prevention and treatment services in Jackson County for more than 30 years.  Voters first approved the Community Backed Anti-Crime Tax in 1989, making Jackson County the nation's first county with a sales tax dedicated to funding drug abuse prevention programs and substance use disorder treatment.  COMBAT's mission expanded in 2009 to also include violence prevention.


Because no one person or single agency has all the answers, in 2015 COMBAT launched what has since become the STRIVIN' - Striving Together to Reduce Violence in Neighborhoods - Initiative.  STRIVIN' brings together various groups to work collaboratively to address the underlying causes of violence.  These groups include school administrators, faith-based organization leaders, police officers, social workers, health care providers, elected officials, and concerned citizens.
