My Community Cares (MCC)

Safe Children, Strong Families, Healthy Communities

Welcome to My Community Cares! MCC is a neighborhood and family driven approach to offer services to families where they are and based on what families tell us they need.

What do we do?

  • Connect families with community resources
  • Solution based case management (We work with you to find a solution to the issue your family is facing.)
  • Parenting classes
  • Parenting cafes
  • Family events

Where do we do it?

Currently, we primarily serve Lafayette’s 70501 and 70506 zip codes, although we can work with families outside of this area, neighborhoods within these zip codes are where we hold classes, parent cafes and events.

Why do we do this?

MCC is a child abuse and neglect prevention program. The neighborhoods we prioritize are those that have been in identified as having the highest rates of child removal and entry into the foster care system. Our goal is to work with and teach families skills that will help them work through challenging times without involvement with the State, and also to assist in helping parents build protective factors to ensure healthy and positive relationships with their children and provide buffers in times of stress.

Strong families make strong communities. Please contact us if you wish to speak about ways we can help you and your family, or is you are interested in volunteering or working with us!
