St. Louis Community and Family Partnership
Prevention Focus: Primary/Secondary – Strengthening Families
The St. Louis Family & Community Partnership is a coalition of sixty child and family serving agencies in the St. Louis area that implements programs to prevent child abuse and neglect and ensure that more children have safe family environments. The partnership provides a collaborative structure through which agencies can share information and resources and coordinate services. Vision for Children at Risk (VCR) provides staff support and guidance for the partnership. The partnership conducts regional planning and data analysis on child abuse/neglect prevention and child welfare, raises awareness of child abuse/neglect issues, provides opportunities for skills development for child-serving professionals through training and resource-sharing, and coordinates prevention services in order to reduce duplication and maximize resources. Emphasis on the Strengthening Families protective factors is woven into all strategies.
