About Franklin County Caring Communities

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.

We support positive youth development and substance abuse prevention through community, school, family, and peer action. We promote community norms that support healthy choices in

partnership with you–parents, youth, organizations, businesses, law enforcement, concerned community members. We also support youth through both school-based and community-based mentoring. Join us!
