Introduction to Orthodoxy
Thou hast revealed the earthly majesty of the dwelling place of the holy glory, O Lord, as the brilliance of the firmament on high. Make firm its foundation unto ages of ages, and receive our fervent supplications which are offered to thee, there in, through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O life and Resurrection of all.

The Orthodox Christian Coalition for Healthy Youth (OCCHY) and is attached to, and formed from, the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese Youth Department, and is located in Boston, Massachusetts. The East Tucson Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition is the local Tucson branch of this organization. You may learn more about OCCHY by visiting their website at www.healthyyouth.com.
Our primary focus locally is to work towards reducing the substance abuse issues facing the youth in our Tucson community, with particular emphasis on the east side. Our activities will largely involve supporting youth awareness efforts and public policy campaigns designed to make our community less hospitable to the elements of illicit drug use, and their influences on our youth.
To help finance the work of the coalition, we are applying for a $625,000 federal Drug Free Communities grant.
OOCHY - East Tucson has determined its primary population as being the Tucson east side youth, and is described by the following geographical service area:
Our primary focus areas for prevention will be in the areas of underage drinking, marijuana use and prescription drug abuse, but in no way will our activities be limited to these substances. Furthermore, we fully intend to support preventative efforts outside of the above geographical boundaries by collaborating with other coalitions and organizations in their efforts.
Members of the community are encouraged to join this collation. For more information, click here to send us a message.
OCCHY stands for Orthodox Christian Coalition for Healthy Youth. This youth initiative is a national effort to strengthen not only our Orthodox Christian youth, but all the youth in our community. Under the supervision of Metropolitan PHILIP, Primate of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese, and that of the leadership of the Department of Youth and Parish Ministries, OCCHY works with local Orthodox parishes to develop local community coalitions, in this case the East Tucson Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition.
Coalitions are vehicles for bringing public and private community organizations and resources together to carry out strategies aimed at reducing substance abuse issues in our local community. Just as no two communities are alike, coalitions are themselves unique as they are adaptive to local needs and available resources.
Public and private sector representatives from various local organizations who are impacted by substance abuse issues. Coalition sector representatives convene and combine talent and resources to address the substance abuse issues focused on by the coalition.
Coalitions use creative strategies and community resources to build healthier, safer neighborhoods. The parish coalition members work with community leaders to build neighborhood relations in a collaborative effort to reach goals.
