This is the website of UP Coalition Network. We are an umbrella organization made up of the 14 Communities That Care (CTC) coalitions serving all 15 counties of the Upper Peninsula. Research has shown that CTC helps lower the rates of youth problem behaviors like alcohol/drug use, delinquency, depression, and more. Our mission is to increase membership in CTC coalitions, share information, and develop/promote UP-wide messaging.
The goal of our CTC coalitions is simple: Create communities in the Upper Peninsula where youth can thrive.
Happier, healthier young people grow into healthier adults, resulting in:
* Improved local workforce
* Stable families
* Reduced strain on taxpayer-funded agencies like police and social services
Our UP-wide campaigns are funded by:
