Our Vision: Promoting a safe, healthy, and supportive community by giving opportunities, recognition, and skills to further develop youth, family, and community.
Our coalition was originally founded in the 90s, and was called MC Squared Community Coalition. In 2017, we began using the Communities That Care model.
CTC helps communities prevent problems before they develop.
CTC is evidence-based to help lower rates of youth problem behaviors, including:
substance use | violence | delinquency | school drop out | teen pregnancy | depression
Communities That Care (or CTC) guides communities through a five-phase change process using prevention science. Many communities that use the CTC process see dramatic reductions in levels of youth alcohol and tobacco use, crime and violence.
We want to break the multi-generation cycles of depression, substance use, and other issues that keep our young people from flourishing. When healthier teens become healthier adults, every aspect of our communities improve!
We know that as educators with BIG hearts, you often supply your own "extras" that make your classroom an engaging, inclusive environment. In appreciation of our educators, MC² would like to offer some help purchasing supplies.

Our CTC is coordinated by Marquette County Health Department
Coordinator: Ashly Gleason
Anyone in the community is welcome to join CTC! We're looking for people in the following sectors:
education | law enforcement | tribal | faith-based | government | medical | social services | families | youth
CTC members typically attend a one-hour meeting per month with their designated work group. Check out our membership page for more info, or contact us.
We want to thank the West End Health Foundation for selecting our coalition as beneficiary for their 7th Annual Golf Classic fundraiser! This is a great time for anyone who enjoys golf, and includes an upscale brunch, contests, and awards.
