Community Coalition Capacity Building Project

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has funded an initiative focused on building community coalition capacity by helping communities to identify and address local problems using evidence-based approaches. This capacity building planning process will include identifying and recruiting key stakeholders, collecting data, beginning to work with school districts, and addressing barriers to program implementation.
As a result of the Community Coalition Capacity Building (CCCB) Funding Announcement, seven projects have been funded:

  • Anti-Drug & Alcohol Crusaders
  • Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia
  • Brothers and Sisters Emerging
  • Central Division Victims Services
  • Manheim Community Cares
  • United Way of Indiana County
  • Wilson Area LINCS Family Center

One goal of this funding is to help communities apply the Communities That Care (CTC) model. CTC is an early upstream evidence-based approach to prevent substance misuse, school dropout, delinquency, and violence among youth in Pennsylvania. The CTC model helps communities to develop and maintain collaborative relationships and partnerships within a local community to promote healthy youth development.
