Our mission is to prevent and reduce alcohol and drug use among youth by engaging in environmental strategies, programs and activities that create a safe, healthy and drug-free Oceanside community.
Oceanside SAFE Coalition is proud to celebrate and acknowledge Gabriella Trinchetta; our Youth Organization Sector Representative with this years Commitment to Excellence Award! "Gabriella's leadership has been at the forefront of several different prevention initiatives this past year. No matter the task, Gabriella is always up for the challenge with a bright genuine smile, organized work ethic and a positive, calming demeanor. She is an incredible advocate for the youth of Oceanside, who gravitate toward her effortlessly as a trusted adult and community champion. If Gabriella is a part of the team, you know the task is not only going to get done, but it’s going to be a true success. We are beyond lucky to have someone like her in our Coalition!"

Thanks to our funding from DFC (Drug Free Communities), Oceanside SAFE Coalition has been able to bring the NY State Alcohol Training Awareness Program to local businesses within our community free of charge.
With ATAP Training and Certification, employees learn their rights, responsibilities, and liabilities regarding underage and intoxicated customers. Stores establish a standard policy to address checking IDs and supervising their premises, as well as learn to recognize valid forms of ID.
Collectively, through this SAFE campaign licensed premises can play a large role in creating a safer Oceanside for everyone!
