Our Mission

How We Work

At CPPC, we believe children should live within families and communities whenever possible. For this, we strive to assist in:

  • Building on the strengths of families and meeting individual needs.
  • Building neighborhood-focused¬†support networks that encourage trust and positive connections.
  • Using and building upon neighborhood support such as faith communities, schools, community centers, parent groups, and businesses.
  • Sharing decision-making amongst parents, neighborhood residents, community members, local organizations and agencies.

Opportunities to be involved exist for any community member who believes that keeping the children safe and families strong is everyone's business.
