Our mission is to empower parents and communities to build supportive relationships, nurture children, and prevent child abuse and neglect.
What We Do
At MCCC we...
Raise awareness about the risk factors associated with child abuse as well as research-based strategies to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect.
Create opportunities for parents, caregivers and community members to identify strategies and provide leadership for grassroots initiatives that support parents, children and families.
Help the broader community understand that child abuse does not occur in a vacuum and that the response to it involves coordination of multiple systems.
Provide Minnesota parents, professionals and the broader community with education and resources that support healthy parenting.
Develop and promote opportunities for parent peer support groups that reduce the chance of child abuse and neglect.
Empower diverse parents statewide in the prevention of incidences of child maltreatment as well as out-of-home placement (foster care) and to address racial disparities in the child protection system.
