Florida's Neighborhood Partnership for the Protection of Children as a Collaborative Approach to Prevention (Workshop 91)
The Neighborhood Partnership, active in five Florida cities, is the result of a "rollout" from the original Community Partnership for the Protection of Children site in Jacksonville started in 1998. This session describes the Neighborhood Partnership program, focusing on how the program was established and developed over the last 18 months and the approaches used to encourage community involvement in protecting children and strengthening families. The Jacksonville sites are unique because they include one rural locale in St. Johns County and thus serve as a trial for using the Partnership concept in a rural setting.
