Communities That Care

What is Communities that Care?

Communities That Care (CTC) aims to prevent problems in youth before they develop. It is a cooperative, community-driven process proven to reduce alcohol and substance use, violence, crime, and other problematic behaviors. CTC uses prevention science, the social development strategy, and tested and effective programs and policies to build a healthier life and environment for youth.

How do we help our youth?

CTC helps to identify risk and protective factors using local data to address health and behavior problems most prevalent in our youth. CTC uses a 5-phase process that communities follow for building a high functioning coalition and creating a community-specific prevention plan.
