We all want our children to be safe.

Community Partnerships for Protecting Children is a network of people who live, work, and serve in our communities. We know that life is complex, and that life’s challenges can get in the way of being the best parents we can be.

Sometimes we all need help.

We partner to support families who are experiencing the highest levels of stress, before things get out of control. And when life has already gotten complicated, we are here to walk beside each family member, to help them get back on their feet.

Together, we help solve problems so parents can focus on raising safe and thriving children.

We know that preventing child abuse is not simply a matter of parents doing a better job, but about creating communities in which doing better is easier.
