Our Vision is a thriving, healthy & safe community for our youth.
Jefferson County Communities That Care is a coalition comprised of more than 100 stakeholders, community members, key leaders and youth. We use a structured, evidence-based community change process focused on preventing substance misuse, sexual/relationship violence and hopelessness/anxiety among youth in our community by reducing risk factors and improving protective factors.
Thanks to everyone who was interviewed for this video project and to Myria for your amazing videography (and doing interviews remotely during a pandemic), editing and narration.
This video was originally created for our coalition's submission to the CDPHE Shared Risk and Protective Factor Approach to Substance Misuse Prevention Funding opportunity. However, it turned out so well that we plan to use it as a standard part of our new member orientation!
