Chippewa County CTC

Our Vision: That all young people grow up supported and nurtured by the collaborative efforts of their families, schools, and communities to become healthy adults who have the opportunity to contribute positively to society.

 CTC helps communities prevent problems before they develop. 

About Communities That Care

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

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


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