The Communities That Care Coalition (CTC) brings together youth, parents, schools, community agencies, and local governments to improve youth health and health equity. CTC is co-hosted by the Partnership for Youth and Community Action Pioneer Valley.

CTC provides a structure for community members to coordinate their work around a common data-driven and evidence-based plan. That is, CTC uses data about the status of local young people to identify needs and measure the success of programs. And CTC stays current with prevention research and selects strategies that have been proven effective in reducing risky youth behaviors.

CTC maintains a website that further outlines their current Community Action Plan, highlights the efforts of their workgroups and committees, and provides resources for parents and families, schools, and communities.
