Mission & Impact
We're making our vision of safe, healthy, and inclusive communities a reality.
It is our mission to promote healthy communities in Franklin County through positive youth development and substance abuse prevention.
What We Do
We support positive youth development and substance abuse prevention through community, school, family, and peer action:
This work promotes community norms that support healthy choices in partnership with people like you — parents, youth, organizations, businesses, law enforcement, concerned community members. Additionally, we support children & youth through both school-based and community-based mentoring.
Caring Communities works with community partners to identify and implement strategies to prevent and reduce substance abuse, especially among youth and young adults, and equip individuals, families, and the community at large to create healthy, substance-free environments where everyone can thrive.
