The Camanche-DeWitt Coalition is a community coalition. Often, community problems or issues are too large and complex for any one agency or organization. In those circumstances, putting together a coalition of groups and individuals can be an effective strategy for consolidating the community's resources, and getting everyone moving in the same direction

Community coalitions are groups of individuals and/or organizations with a common interest who agree to work together toward a common goal. That goal could be as narrow as obtaining funding for a specific intervention, or as broad as trying to permanently improve the overall quality of life for most people in the community.  your paragraph here.
