Roy Communities that Care Coalition
HAVE YOU NOTICED?
Have you noticed the decals on the Roy City Police Cars and Fire Department vehicles? Roy Communities That Care collaborated with Parents Empowered and Roy City to bring awareness of the dangers of underage drinking. Next time you are out in the community, see if you can spot one!
WHAT DID WE DO IN 2018?
Some of the things the Roy CTC coalition did in addition to the underage drinking prevention campaign include:
• Started the Roy CTC Coaliton
• Hosted a press event to unveil decals for City vehicles
• Partnered with Roy City for our 3rd annual National Family Dinner Night, which not only served meals to 500 people, but provided information to families from local resources.
• The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day: During 2018 we collected over 700 pounds of unused and/or expired medications.
• Completed the Community Data and Resource Assessment, which helped us identify resources available in Roy and where gaps may exist.
WHAT DO WE VALUE?
We strive to build connections in and among families, schools, and communities to decrease youth substance use and violence, and improve academic success, mental health, and general well-being.
We think beyond preventing harmful behaviors to promoting positive youth development. We focus on building resilience in young people and increasing the protective factors that support development.
We use approaches that are tested by research and nationally recognized as effective. We choose strategies appropriate to Roy City, based on current local data.
We involve all sectors of the community and build our collective capacity to support sustainable, long term changes.
We work to create a socially and economically just, safe, inclusive place for all members of our community, understanding that intolerance, injustice, and inequity are public health issues that affect all people.
We recognize that young people make choices in an environment shaped by their families, peers, schools, and communities; we work for positive change in individuals and their local environment.
