Mission, Vision, & Values

Who We Are

The Child Poverty Collaborative (CPC) is comprised of diverse organizations and individuals who share the same goal: to make our community a place where all children and families can thrive and reach their goals. It is a community-driven initiative designed to address the unacceptable rates of child poverty in Cincinnati.

What We Do

We lead, partner, and support system changes to reduce poverty and improve children's lives. In collaboration with families and community partners, the CPC seeks to ensure that people currently living in poverty move toward achieving and maintaining self-sufficiency.


Our mission is to build and implement a community-driven, data-informed action plan. We will engage directly with community members and leaders to gather fresh ideas generated through conversation, reflection, and collaborative planning.


No one in our community lives in poverty.
