[Communities That Care (CTC)]

CTC is a coalition-based community prevention operating system that uses a public health approach to prevent youth problem behaviors such as violence, delinquency, school drop out and substance abuse.

Program Targets:

Ultimately, the beneficiaries of CTC are children of any age in the community. CTC guides decision makers in a community coalition through an assessment and prioritization process that identifies the risk and protective factors most in need of attention, and links those priorities to prevention programs that are proven to work in addressing them.
