Minnesota Communities Caring for Children (MCCC), home of Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota and the Minnesota Circle of Parents®, works to build healthy environments where all children thrive. Our prevention model promotes individual and community led action to end child abuse and to build the resilience of children, parents and community members in neighborhoods, towns and cities throughout Minnesota.
Our mission is to empower parents and communities to build supportive relationships, nurture children and prevent child abuse and neglect.
We envision a state where all children are given the opportunity for a healthy future.
STRENGTHS OF ALL PARENTS
All parents need to be supported in their efforts to develop their strengths as caring adults.
AMPLIFYING THE PARENT’S VOICE
By amplifying their voices, parents can find the efficacy and power to affect change in the home and the community.
COMBINING SCIENCE WITH COMMUNITY WISDOM
The best approaches to preventing child abuse combine science-based strategies with community wisdom.
Working together, parents and communities can transform punitive systems and negative cultural norms into successful approaches that address violence, trauma, and racism.
CULTURAL EQUITY STATEMENT
To support a full creative life for all, Minnesota Communities Caring for Children (MCCC) commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable organization and nation.
