Chippewa County Communities That Care

Our Vision: The vision of Iron County Communities that Care is to implement the Social Development Strategy as a prevention framework to promote youth development and reduce risk behaviors.


CTC is evidence-based to help lower rates of youth problem behaviors, including:

substance use | violence | delinquency | school drop out | teen pregnancy | depression


 CTC helps communities prevent problems before they develop. 

About CTC

Communities That Care (or CTC) guides communities through a proven five-phase change process, using prevention science as its base. Many communities that use the CTC process see dramatic reductions in levels of youth alcohol and tobacco use, and crime and violence. 


We want to break the multi-generation cycles of depression, substance use, and other issues that keep our young people from flourishing. When healthier teens become healthier adults, every aspect of our communities improve!
