A strategic Communication Plan to raise awareness of who we are, what we do, and how we accomplish our mission of the prevention, intervention, and treatment of child abuse.

Purpose

The Child Protection Center’s “Wings of Change” series was created to streamline communications and effectively share our mission. The overall goal is to raise awareness on the issue of child abuse, educate the community, and foster relationships with advocates through transparency and honesty.

Child abuse is a complex issue, requiring multiple teams, agencies, and philanthropic efforts to address the issue head on. While discussing abuse of children in our community is difficult to discuss and uncomfortable to hear, it’s our duty as an organization to share this imperative information with our community.

Through “Wings of Change”, we will provide the general public, donors, advocates, and community members with a behind the scenes look as to HOW the Child Protection Center fulfills our mission of the prevention, intervention, and treatmentof child abuse. Serving our mission allows CPC to accomplish our vision of creating a world where children are safe from abuse and free to thrive.
