The AmeriCorps Partnering to Protect Children (APPC) program has been serving Iowa communities for nearly half of a decade. Administered through Iowa State University’s Child Welfare Research & Training Project, APPC members serve at a variety of host sites located across the state. Our members work to implement the four key strategies of Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC):
APPC members will be 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. APPC can achieve this, in part, by placing AmeriCorps members with CPPC sites throughout the state of Iowa in under-served, rural and urban, high-poverty areas. Members assist their site in implementing an intervention based on the CPPC theory of change.
