Iron County CTC

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 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!
