Communities That Care (also known as CTC) brings together community members to create a safer, healthier environment for our kids and teens. Anyone in the community can join CTC. Professionals, stay-at-home parents, grandparents, and youth themselves (with parental consent). The more people we have working together, the better! It's free to be a part of CTC.
Whether or not you have children, creating a better environment for our kids is good for the community. Kids who are physically and emotionally healthier grow into healthier adults. This results in an improved local workforce, more stable families, and reduced strain on taxpayer-funded agencies like police and social services.
We invite the participation of all community members. You can be part of the solution by spending just a few hours each month participating in CTC!
In partnership with Beyond the Save and our sister coalitions in UP Coalition Network, our CTC is distributing prescription drug lock boxes for free in the community. The goal is to promote safe storage of opioids and other drugs to ensure they aren't accessed by youth or others vulnerable to developing a Substance Use Disorder. Contact us to learn more!
