Keeping Youth Safe and Drug Free

What Is Communities That Care?

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.


The CTC Vision

Norristown Area Communities That Care for Youth (CTC) brings together community residents and leaders to prevent substance use and violence in order to secure a more safe, caring and educated environment in which youth can live and grow to be productive members of our community.


CTC Service Area

Norristown Area Communities That Care focuses on reducing risk factors for youth in the Greater Norristown Area (East Norriton Township, West Norriton Township and the Municipality of Norristown) in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
