Community Building Community is an established regional charitable health clinic and community center in Midvale, Utah. Our first goal is to increase the community capacity to reduce substance use risks among the Hispanic community in Midvale and Summit County. Our second goal is to reduce the proportion of middle and high school students that use alcohol or marijuana on a recurring basis (30-day data) by implementing evidence-based programs. Our target population is youth ages 12 to 18 and their parents, in Midvale and Summit County, UT. With funding through the SAMHSA SPF-PFS grant, we will significantly expand community resources to reduce racial and ethnic and rural disparities in prevention. Our intended outcomes are 1) increased youth and parent awareness of the harms of underage drinking and marijuana use, 2) increased youth and parent skills to communicate about mental health and substance use, and 3) increased youth and parent behaviors and actions to promote mental health and prevent alcohol and marijuana use. We aim to change the environmental contexts in which youth and parents make decisions about alcohol and marijuana use. We expect to reach about 1200 community members per year, or 6,000 over the course of the project. The total community size is 11,175. The CBC uses the Communities That Care model to mobilize the Hispanic community to combat youth alcohol and marijuana use. We leverage our network of Hispanic patients, volunteers, and partner organizations to engage families in assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation processes addressing the priority substances of alcohol and marijuana. Our approach includes: 1) Establishing and enhancing youth prevention partnerships, 2) Implementing evidence-based programs that are adapted for the unique social contexts of immigrant Hispanic families, 3) Conducting outreach and education in schools, apartment complexes, Hispanic grocery stores, and other places where the Hispanic population gathers, and 4) Implementing messaging strategies specific to the Hispanic population. As a Hispanic-led organization that was founded to prevent suicide and teen pregnancy, the CBC fills healthcare and prevention gaps for communities traditionally left behind. Since 1998, we have grown into a charitable primary care and dental clinic and community center that offers a variety of services and resources—from immunizations to food pantry, fluoride treatment to afterschool violin lessons. We work closely with the most vulnerable community members to understand their needs and the adverse impacts of social determinants of health. We infuse new resources into the community to promote equity. The CBC is a national model for integrating community health workers, behavioral health, primary care and prevention. With funding through the SAMHSA SPF-PFS grant, we look forward to contributing our learnings to all project participants and with our peer state and local coalitions.
