POCP Mission

Protect our children's innocence, privacy rights, and quality of education by supporting the family and encouraging community involvement.

Our vision is to provide every child with the protections necessary to develop a health person in spirit, mind and body. Protecting our children through educating and empowering the local community to have a positive, life-changing effect on the entities that influence our children and impact their futures is our purpose.
