The State Plans to Stop Funding CPPC contracts

The State has informed us that it will no longer be funding any CPPC contract across Maine after September. Thousands of children and families across the state will be impacted if their safe places and community supports disappear.

CPPC's mission is that 'Together, we keep children and their families safe, engaged, and thriving.' CPPC executes its mission through a network of over 60 community partners. TOA serves as the backbone agency for this collective effort in Cumberland and York counties. Educators, law enforcement officers, case managers, faith leaders, business owners, and others are brought together to focus on preventing child abuse and neglect. At-risk communities are identified and CPPC goes to work. CPPC staff coordinate a community response by providing information, resources, and supports to children and families, often including basic needs.
