North Davis started implementing Communities that Care (CTC) in May 2018 with the support of Police Chiefs Garret Atkin and Kelly Bennett; and Mayors Mike Gailey and Mark Shepherd. North Davis CTC consists of one Key Leader Board and one Community Board to address the needs of our five cities (Clearfield, Clinton, Sunset, Syracuse, and West Point). Our coalition has identified our prevention focus areas and selected evidence-based programs to address our community’s needs. North Davis CTC is focused on preventing vaping, depression, and suicide ideation. Our community board will finalize our action plan by June 2021.
The following programs have been selected to address our community’s prevention focus areas:
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and support a one-to-one matched mentoring relationship. Big Brothers Big Sisters believe that all kids have the capacity to go on to lead healthy, successful lives, no matter the challenge or situation. Children ranging from elementary to high school are matched with volunteer mentors to help kids thrive. Children who participate are shown to have greater confidence, better relationships, avoid risky behaviors, and achieve educational success.

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is an evidence-based skills training program for families with youth ages 7-17. Families attend weekly skills classes together that teach parents skills in bonding, setting clear, firm boundaries, and monitoring their children’s emotional well-being and activities. Youth learn life skills. SFP helps increase protection and reduce risk that leads to substance abuse and youth depression. Davis Behavioral Health hosts these SFP classes.

Incredible Years is an evidence-based program for parents with children ages 2 – 8. The program teaches parents how to support their children’s emotions, help them problem solve, and be involved in their child’s academics. Davis Behavioral Health hosts these classes in English and Spanish. Incredible Years classes are 2-hours long, for 12 weeks. To see the next available class, please click here.
