Our Mission

The East Boston Alliance for Support, Treatment, Intervention and Education–EASTIE–is a coalition of community agencies and residents that mobilizes youth, families, community members and leaders to prevent and reduce substance misuse among youth and adults in our community. We are a diverse coalition working together to promote a healthy East Boston for all by reducing risk factors and building protective factors at the individual, family, community and societal levels.
Additionally, EASTIE supports education and prevention efforts by serving as “experts” by presenting at larger community forums and providing guest speakers for youth groups. Those who represent the “education” arm of EASTIE are well-versed in youth development. They can also provide access to a large portion of EB residents: schoolchildren, parents, sports’ teams, and faith communities—through which prevention and educational programming can be delivered.
