Communities That Care (CTC) is a community-based prevention system proven to reduce youth health and behavior problems community wide. Based on the premise that communities are unique, CTC helps local coalitions develop community-specific prevention plans based on their unique levels of behavioral health problems and risk and protective factors. CTC’s 5-phase process provides communities with step-by-step guides and tools for building a high functioning community prevention coalition to achieve collective impact. In 2014, the University of Washington Center for Communities That Care launched CTC PLUS, an on-line learning system of web presentations, videos and group exercises.
