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 helps communities prevent problems before they develop.
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!
Our CTC is coordinated by Great Lakes Recovery Centers
Coordinator: Traci Johnson
Anyone in the community is welcome to join CTC! We're looking for people in the following sectors:
education | law enforcement | tribal | faith-based | government | medical | social services | families | youth
CTC members typically attend a one-hour meeting per month with their designated work group. Check out our membership page for more info, or contact us.
