Sheboygan County Community Partnership for Children (CPC)
The Sheboygan County Community Partnership for Children (CPC) is a community impact initiative of United Way that works to ensure parents and families have the supports and services they need to ensure their children are safe, healthy, reaching their developmental milestones on time and are ready for kindergarten.
Mission: Develop and support a coordinated system to address the diverse needs of Sheboygan County's children and their families and caregivers.
Vision: All Sheboygan County children are safe, healthy and prepared to grow, learn and achieve.
The following are programs and activities coordinated year-round by the CPC Coalition:
The Welcome Baby program offers a visit from a Resource Specialist to parents and their newborn in the Sheboygan County hospitals. During the visit, parents are connected to the Parents as Teachers home visiting program and other community resources to meet their needs.
Parent Cafés explore the five Strengthening Families Protective Factors through guided peer-to-peer learning, self-reflection and conversations that strengthen the social and emotional health of families. Learn more about our current series here!
Community developmental screening events give parents and caregivers another opportunity to discuss their child's development with trained staff who can share activities to foster healthy child development and connect families to community resources.
Born Learning is a community change strategy that is designed to boost children's language, literacy, social, cognitive and emotional skills and encourage families to get active. The Born Learning Trails are available 24/7 and located at Generations (1500 Douglas Drive, Plymouth, WI 53073) and on the Shoreland 400 trail located behind RCS Empowers, Inc.
Many families in Sheboygan County struggle to secure necessary health and safety items for their children. While there are agencies in Sheboygan County that help provide these items, lack of reliable transportation and limited time off of work present barriers to families attempting to access these services.
By partnering with a variety of agencies already serving families in their own homes/communities around Sheboygan County, we are able to break down these barriers and deliver needed items to families at times and locations that are convenient to them. Thanks to a grant from the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board, we were able to purchase a large initial stock of supplies.
