Mission & Goal Statement
“Alger County United and Thriving: Promoting a safe, healthy and prosperous environment for all youth and adults.”
Alger County Community Collaborative – Communities That Care (AC3CTC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 collaborative of public and private health, education, human service, civic organizations, local businesses and citizens. The AC3 was re-established in 2013 after a 3 year hiatus. In 2014, the AC3 adopted the Communities That Care program (CTC), to provide evidenced based prevention programming for all 6th thru 12th grade Alger County youth. Alger youth survey results guide the CTC process in implementing only those programs that directly respond to our youth’s specific needs. We have had two rounds of survey, with a 3rd scheduled for 2018. We have seven active CTC work groups with 30 plus members and over 100 AC3CTC members receiving emails, volunteering or attending meetings.
We believe in using local data to identify and monitor risk factors youth face in our communities. Based on the Communities That Care model (learn more here), Collaborative members work together toimprove local resources and address needs.
Each year, AC3CTC prepares a summary of its accomplishments. Take a look: We hope you’ll agree that our collaboration is incredibly fruitful!
