Mountain Youth Network in Clear Creek County is a true community-based initiative. Our coalition includes individuals from a range of sectors: law enforcement, education, faith community, health and human services, government, youth-serving organizations, students, community organizations, parents, and local businesses
The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) requested ongoing funding from the marijuana tax cash fund for youth substance abuse prevention.
The funding was designated for the implementation of the Communities that Care (CTC) model in over 40 communities across Colorado primarily launched in local public health departments.
Mountain Youth Network is now funded through foundation contributions as well as state grants from both the Office of Behavioral Health and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
