Our coalition is funded by NorthCare Network.

Communities That Care (also known as CTC) brings together community members to create a safer, healthier environment for our kids and teens.

Anyone in the community can join CTC. Professionals, stay-at-home parents, grandparents, and youth themselves (with parental consent). The more people we have working together, the better! It's free to join CTC.

Whether or not you have children, creating a better environment for our kids is good for the community.

Kids who are physically and emotionally healthier grow into healthier adults. This results in an improved local workforce, more stable families, and reduced strain on taxpayer-funded agencies like police and social services.


We are part of a network of CTC coalitions working UP-wide.

Get involved in your community!
