Warrick County Communities That Care Coalition
The Warrick County Communities That Care (CTC) Coalition's vision is to be a community of healthy, productive families, free of drug and alcohol-abuse that engage in community and educational activities and present themselves as positive role models, knowing they are people of value and worth.
NEW TOOL TO SUPPORT PARENTS IN THE PREVENTION OF UNDERAGE DRINKING!!!
The purpose of the registry is to provide parents the ability to communicate with each other when their teens are at other teen’s homes and/or planning to attend parties. An important piece of the Parents in Partnership registry is the Parent Pledge. Parents pledge not to host underage drinking parties and to support other parents who also make the pledge.

CONGRATULATIONS WARRICK COUNTY COMMUNITIES THAT CARE COALITION!!!!
On Friday, September 6, 2013, The White House released the federal Drug Free Communities (DFC) Grant Awards and Warrick County Communities That Care Coalition is a recipient! Youth First, Inc. wrote the grant on behalf of the WCCTCC. The grant is for $125,000 a year for five years, and the purpose is to prevent underage drinking and youth substance abuse through environmental strategies. The grant will also build the coalition's capacity to have a greater impact in Warrick County.
DFC grants for community coalitions are one of the primary ways in which the federal government invests in prevention, and it's an extremely competitive process to receive it.
This tremendous accomplishment means we now have an awesome opportunity to strengthen more kids and families! Many thanks to Youth First and the support of all WCCTCC members!
