Communities That Care (CTC) is a risk-focused approach to reducing adolescent drug use and violence through community mobilization and planning. Local citizens and community leaders work together as the CTC for Youth Board to identify the risk factors that increase the likelihood of problem behaviors developing, and enhance the protective factors that can shield youngsters from problems. The risk and protective factors are used to implement a comprehensive plan to step ahead of problems with far-reaching and long-lasting solutions.
Cheltenham Communities That Care strives to create a healthy community for youth and families through opportunities and collaboration that decreases risk factors for problem behaviors and promotes positive youth development, academic achievement, healthy decision-making, and strong family bonds.
Cheltenham Communities That Care focuses on reducing risk factors for youth in Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
