Our Story

Route 9 CDC, formally known as New Castle Prevention Coalition, formalized in 2010 and became its own 501 (c)( 3) in 2015, with a goal of reducing substance abuse by addressing  causative issues such as crime, unemployment and underemployment, elevated high school dropout rates and community trauma. The Coalition’s focus is the 12 communities (Oakmont, Dunleith, Rosehill, Mansion Park, Arbor Place, Garfield Park, Overview Gardens, Holloway Terrace, Mayfield Manor, Simon’s Gardens, Rosegate and Mobile Home Village and Apartments) that parallel the Route 9 Corridor from Rogers Road to Memorial Drive, north to south, and Route 9 to Route 13 east to west, where prevention activities will have the greatest impact.
