Community Partnerships for Protecting Children

Jones County Community Partnerships for Protecting Children

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 the Community Partnerships is to protect children by changing the culture to improve child welfare processes, practices, and policies. The Community Partnership approach involves four key strategies; shared decision making, neighborhood networking, individualized course of action, and policy and practice change, which are implemented together to achieve desired results.

Jones County Family Council

The Jones County Family Council (JCFC) is our local child abuse prevention council designed to promote the general welfare of children and families. The council is a non-profit 501(c)3.

How Do I Become Involved?

CPPC/JCFC is made up of a broad base of individuals and organizations in the community who are willing to devote their time, talent, leadership, and resources to increasing families' protective factors and preventing child abuse and neglect before it occurs.  Participation is open to anyone in the community who wants to help. You may attend meetings as a professional representative of an organization that provides services and supports to vulnerable families or as a concerned member of the public not affiliated with an organization. All are welcome! Contact Heather to find out the next meeting date!
