Communities That Care can help you prevent problems before they start

Open your eyes & look within. 

What's happening

Currently we are moving from P​​hase 2 into Phase 3 of the CTC process. Four out of six work groups have already met. Our Executive Committee meeting will be coming up the first week in January. Click the READ MORE tab below to see what else we have been up to and to view our Vision Statement. 

 

2. Get Organized Communities form a board or work within an existing coalition. After recruiting community board members, they:

- Learn about prevention science.

- Write a vision statement.

- Organize workgroups.

- Develop a timeline for installing CTC.

1. Get Started Communities get ready to introduce CTC. They work behind the scenes to:

- Activate a small group of catalysts.

- Assess how ready the community is to begin the process.

- Identify key community leaders to champion the process.

- Invite diverse stakeholders to get involved.

 

 

4. Create a Community Action Plan The community board creates a plan for prevention work in their community, to:

- Reduce widespread risks and strengthen protection.

- Define clear, measurable outcomes using assessment data.

- Select and expand tested and effective policies and programs using the Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development website.

5. Implement & Evaluate In this final phase, communities:

- Implement selected programs and policies.

- Monitor and evaluate them.

- Measure results and track progress to ensure improvements are achieved.
