Welcome to Minnesota Communities Caring for Children
MCCC is the Minnesota Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America and Circle of Parents National.
Our MISSION is to empower individuals and communities to stop child abuse and neglect before it starts through education, advocacy, and family support.
The focus of our work is PREVENTION. One way to prevent child abuse and neglect is by educating, supporting, and empowering parents.
- We do this by training parents to be leaders within their communities.
- We also do this by facilitating Circle of Parents mutual self-help support groups for parents statewide.
Another way prevent child abuse and neglect is to EDUCATE, SUPPORT, and EMPOWER communities.
- We do this by raising awareness about childhood development and the (often long-term) effects of childhood trauma on the health and well-being of children and families.
- We also do this by facilitating conversations about how communities can strengthen families through healing and resilience-building practices.
We ALL have a role to play in creating environments where children thrive!
