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 effective programs to build a healthier life and environment for 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 with a step-by-step guide and tools for building a high functioning community coalition and create a community-specific prevention plan.

CTC depends on the involvement of community members interested in or already involved in youth health-related work. If you would like to be part of a workgroup, or would like more information about the program, contact one of our CTC facilitators.
