Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) is a community-based approach to child protection.  Partnerships work to prevent child abuse, neglect, and re-abuse, safely decrease the number of out-of-home placements, and promote timely reunification when children are placed in foster care.  Community members, professionals, and families work together to develop and implement local programs, services, supports, and policies that positively impact families and protect children from abuse.  The long term focus of CPPC is to protect children by changing the culture in our community to improve child welfare processes, practices, and policies.
