Dickinson County Communities That Care

Our Vision: Dickinson County is a nurturing environment that encourages youth to follow their passions and builds them up so they can thrive and contribute to the future of this community.

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!
