Arin Jones, Program Coordinator, 319.385.8126, arinj@iastate.edu 

The Henry County Child Advocacy Council (HCCAC) is an informal network who works to identify gaps in services needed to keep children safe from abuse and neglect, create awareness of child abuse issues, and promote community change to prevent it.

We meet monthly to determine the best use of time, money and resources to address child abuse and its prevention.

Meetings are held the Third Thursday of each month from 12-1:30pm

What is Community Partnership for Protecting Children (CPPC)?

  • CPPC is an approach that neighborhoods, towns, cities, and states can adopt to improve how children are protected from abuse and neglect.

  • It aims to blend the work and expertise of families, professionals and residents to bolster supports for vulnerable families and children.

  • Community Partnership is not a program...it is a way of working with families that helps services to be more inviting, strengths and needs-based, accessible and relevant.

  • It incorporates prevention strategies as well as strategies needed to address abuse and neglect, once identified.
