About AmeriCorps Partnering to Protect Children
The purpose of the AmeriCorps Partnering to Protect Children (APPC) Program is to actively engage Iowans in providing families and children with the supports and resources they need to keep children safe from abuse/neglect thereby creating communities where children thrive. The program achieves this purpose, in part, by placing AmeriCorps members with non-profit organizations in underserved rural and urban high-poverty areas across the state to assist the sites in implementing an intervention based on the Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) theory of change (Lint, 2006).
