Hello from the CCC family! We are extremely busy providing CCC in-home services as well as the operation of the Lincoln Trail Regional Network.

We deliver quality in-home services to our families and provide professional coaching and support. Right now, we are aiding families in increasing positive parenting and discipline skills, obtaining housing, improving household cleanliness, increasing budgeting skills and financial management, building positive relationships with schools and most importantly we are providing a positive support for families. We are striving to connect families to available community resources and supports that may be beneficial to the family.

We are currently serving 10 families and have many families on our waiting list. The families on our waiting list have been offered a family planning meeting. Family planning meetings are a resource used to bring the targeted family and appropriate community partners together in order to brainstorm and create an action plan that will best aid the family. These meetings have been a huge success and are beneficial to the families involved.
