Sparking A Revolution!

Hearts and hands together for youth mental wellness.

Join the revolution in Summit County!

We don’t just talk

we act.

Feel great about your kids.
Know they have been empowered.
Watch them thrive! 

CTC invites you to come rally around our youth and
be a part of the revolution:

Communities That Care

I believe the evidence-based, early prevention work of Communities that Care – and of all its coalition members – is critical to helping our children and teens live their healthiest, best lives. It is a privilege for me to be a part of such a vibrant, dedicated group of thought leaders.

Brooks Addicott

Mom, CTC Advisory Committee, Recovery Coach


Financial support is especially critical and allows
Communities That Care to continue offering our
current programs and expand our reach through
new programs.


Whatever you are going through, you don’t have to go through it alone. We’re here to help you get the support you need.

Community Connecting Events

CTC is delighted to share Community Connecting Events offered by our coalition members. Check out our community calendar to learn more.


Being a friend is mostly about being there. We have the resources and options to support you, a loved one or a friend with your mental health needs.

Communities That Care is the prevention coalition of Summit County. Think of us as the hub for all our youth-serving organizations to gather and work together to effectively prevent youth substance use and suicide. We are loyal to our partners, to our youth and parents, and to our community as a whole. We lead our community to work cohesively, collaborative and effectively through the collective impact model for effective community change.

We are 100% committed to helping you help them. Hearts and hands together for youth mental wellness!


We’d like to thank our sponsors.
Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to promote effective prevention of youth substance use and suicide among the parents and students in our community.
