Communities that Care: Lafayette, Colorado

Help Make Lafayette a Place Where Young People Thrive

Lafayette, Colorado is participating in a process called Communities that Care (CTC). This process helps communities prevent problems before they develop.

Vision Statement

A vibrant community, Lafayette is committed to equitable access to quality education, health, and community resources, ensuring its youth emerge as healthy, engaged, and compassionate citizens.

The Communities that Care Model Works

Many communities see dramatic reductions in levels of youth alcohol and tobacco use, crime, and violence.

Participating communities have seen more of their youth:

  • Graduate from high school on time
  • Do better economically
  • Have better mental health in their 20s
  • Have fewer sexually transmitted diseases
  • Have fewer teen pregnancies

Community Survey

Lafayette Communities That Care would like to better understand the Lafayette community to improve things for young people and adults. Share your thoughts by completing a confidential survey:

Information provided in the survey is voluntary and confidential and will be combined with other people’s information so that you are not identified.

Community Board

This project cannot be successful without the help of the community. Community Board members include a diverse group of parents, youth, community organizations, school staff, and business owners.

Members are people from Lafayette who know the neighborhood and who have a commitment to make things even better for our youth.

Community Board Members

  • Attend an orientation
  • Attend regular meetings (minimal time required monthly)
  • Share your ideas and listen to the ideas of other board members
  • Participate in a work group
  • Commit to a minimum of 1 year. Of course, we hope you’ll stay longer!

No experience is necessary. Meetings will include workshops about prevention science and a trained facilitator will guide the board through the Communities That Care process.

Community Board meetings will include free food and childcare.
