The Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) is an approach that strives to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and to support families. This approach recognizes that keeping children safe is everyone’s business, CPPC provides opportunities for community members to come together, help families in times of need and shape the services and supports provided.

Our hope is that every family is thriving. However, we all stumble across difficult times now and then – so we need each other to help get us back on our feet. Our communities offer many valuable resources. But knowing where to find them can be difficult. This website is designed to be your tool to locate local support and find links to the answers you are seeking. 

Take a look around this site…

For families: We hope you will learn what resources are available to your family

For programs & agencies: We hope to connect you to families who need your services

For the community: We hope to offer you opportunities to help children and their families in your area
