Listing Details

Description

The AmeriCorps Partnering to Protect Children (APPC) program is currently starting its third program year. Members are placed at Host Sites across the state of Iowa. Members serving in this AmeriCorps program work toward implementing the four key strategies for Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) prevention initiative which actively engages 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. Specifically, in this program year the members are primarily responsible for strengthening their sites in relation to three priority areas: building community capacity; delivering information to service providers; and providing outreach and supports to parents/caregivers in a coordinated manner. The program achieves this, in part, by placing AmeriCorps members with CPPC sites throughout the state of Iowa in under-served rural and urban high-poverty areas across the state to assist the sites in implementing an intervention based on the CPPC theory of change.
