Our Vision: promoting a safe, healthy, and supportive community by giving opportunities, recognition, and skills to further develop youth, family, and 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.
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!
Our CTC is coordinated by Marquette County Health Department
Coordinator: Jennifer Eyler
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.
