The Comprehensive Community Collaboration Demonstration Model to Strengthen and Preserve High Risk Families (CCCDM) project was collaboratively developed by FRC and the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services (MDCPS) with the input of community stakeholders. The project intends to demonstrate the benefits of identifying at-risk families prior to their involvement with the child welfare system and coordinating the provision of a continuum of prevention programs and interventions designed to improve child safety, family stability, and well-being.
This program provides:
- Care coordination
- Crisis prevention
Ultimately, the project seeks to reduce instances of verified child maltreatment (abuse/neglect) and decrease entries into the child welfare system.
Eligibility: At-risk families and children will be identified and referred to programing through extensive community outreach and cross-system partnerships.

Prevention with Purpose: Venise’s Story
We are thankful for Venise's strength, determination, power to overcome and for her willingness to represent the Family Resource Center of North Mississippi and share her story. It is so important for the world to understand why supporting family’s needs should be a top priority on everyone’s agenda.
This video is part of a series of conversations intended to help increase awareness of the importance and impact that providing families with community-based prevention services and support reduces the chances that families become involved with the child welfare system, and how, when support is provided early, the risk of family stress is greatly reduced.
