My Community Cares (MCC)
What is My Community Cares?
My Community Cares (MCC) is a neighborhood-driven, community-focused initiative, designed to strengthen families and support communities. The ultimate goal is to ensure that every neighborhood in Louisiana has access to the services and supports they need to be healthy and safe. These services and supports are provided with equity to promote child and family well-being and prevent children from entering the foster care system. MCC transforms child welfare by empowering individuals and communities to access prevention strategies that reflect their unique needs. With MCC’s neighborhood-driven approach, Louisiana is taking a bold step towards safer, healthier, and more vibrant communities for its children and families.
You, your family, and your neighbors play the most essential roles in helping children and families in our communities thrive. Families in need are connected with individuals who have lived experience in child welfare systems, community members, judges, child advocates, attorneys, service providers, schools, businesses, emergency responders, healthcare providers, churches, DCFS, and non-profit agencies.
