The Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) aims to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and to support families. In Iowa, Community Partnerships have brought together parents, youth, social service professionals, faith ministries, local business, schools and caring neighbors to help design, govern and participate in programs that seek to create a continuum of care and support for children, youth and parents in their neighborhoods. This approach recognizes that keeping children safe is everybody’s business and that community members must be offered opportunities to help vulnerable families and shape the services and supports provided.
We provide leadership and help coordinate activities to implement the CPPC initiative in Scott County. This contract includes the Iowa Youth Decision Making Team initiative and Family Decision Making Team meetings.
