About Us

Effective prevention is a community issue, not something that is up to one child or teen.

Olathe Communities That Care is a city-wide coalition that aims to reduce problem behaviors such as underage drinking, drug use, youth violence, etc. The coalition uses results from a Kansas-wide survey of Johnson County's 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th-grade students to guide its efforts. Representatives from various sectors of the community make up the coalition's leadership team.

Our Mission
