The first step of the Communities That Care process is to inform leaders in the community about CTC and how it works. Without the backing of local key leaders, coalitions struggle to succeed. We are lucky to have leaders in a variety of sectors who have offered a wide range of support, including outreach; donations of money, food, and space; and allowing employees to volunteer in CTC on company time.
For #NationalPreventionWeek 2019, we chose Kevin Store of the Portage Health Foundation as our #PreventionChampion. Thank you Kevin and PHF for your dedication to the well-being of local youth!
