Our Community Partnership

Lancaster County Joining Forces is a collection of organizations and individuals working together to save lives and create a community that supports recovery for those affected by addiction. The Joining Forces partnership uses a strategic approach to strengthen the work we do separately, which allows us to identify gaps in services and treatments so we can save more lives together.
