The Team 

thinkers & doers

The power of a diverse, shared decision-making team is revealed by the trust and coordination between the people that work hard to help others. Exposing service gaps in the community is necessary to improve access to services that help families thrive. It is our Shared Decision-Making Team's initiative to create impact through outcome-driven projects and sprinkle in some fun community events to reach out to families and service providers in the area.

local fund navigators

Decategorization, better known as "Decat," is an initiative implemented by Iowa Department of Human Services in 1987. It is unique in the way it makes federal funding more accessible for community-based initiatives to react swiftly to fill voids in service availability. Story County is part of Polk County Service Area, and our Decat Board operates as a navigator for the CPPC Shared Decision-Making Team. For a more detailed description, visit the Iowa DHS website.

Community Projects & Events


Community Projects & Events


Community Partnerships for Protecting Children has the ability to meld ideas from agencies and community members to enact new projects that increase the stability and safety of local families.

What does it take to get a project going? Anyone that has an idea is encouraged to contact us or come to our monthly meetings to share a personal experience or social issue that our prevention network could impact. Our team will provide input and resources to promote great projects.

How can we afford it? We are funded by the Decat Board in the Polk County Service Area in Iowa. We can devise a project, refine it, and present it to the board for approval. Annually, we receive funds to put toward community projects. If you are interested in helping us plan projects, or collaborating with our group in other ways, take the opportunity to meet or join the shared decision-making team! See, What's in a Meeting? for more information.
