Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) is not a program, but rather an initiative to engage community members and agencies to bolster supports for vulnerable families and their children.
The four strategies to reduce child abuse and neglect are:
Individualized Course of Action
Neighborhood & Community Networking
Policy & Practice Change
Shared Decision Making
The CPPC committee meetings are open to the public and you are invited to join our initiative.
CPPC grew out of the children's program at the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. In 1995 and 1996 the Foundation awarded planning grants to four national sites, one of which was Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
