CTC & COVID-19 Interview Series

Posted on May 21, 2020 at 2:50 PM by Jason Lederer

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting each of us in different ways. Communities that Care (CTC) is working with Summit County to launch a series of short, weekly videos featuring guest speakers from throughout the community. These short videos, recorded in both English and Spanish, discuss everything from opportunities and resources for youth, to recreating safety on local trails. Tune in weekly to learn more.

Summit County Communities that Care, formerly known as Healthy Futures Initiative, is an evidence based prevention planning system designed to bring community members and community partners together to address youth substance use. CTC implements evidence-based prevention strategies to address Summit County's unique risk and protective factors. Functioning as a community coalition, CTC consists of a key leader board, a community board, and a youth coalition who drive the progression of our work.
