Do You Participate in Your Communities That Care Coalition?

Communities That Care (CTC) is a community-based prevention model that has been evaluated nationwide with significant success in preventing youth substance use initiation, youth crime, and violence. This means youth are also less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as driving under the unfluence! The CTC model empowers local communities to assess the specific risk and protective factors among the youth in their communities. Communities then choose from a menu of effective, evidence-based programs and strategies to address the specific needs of local youth. CTC is funded by the marijuana tax cash fund.
