The Child Protection Center, Inc. (CPC) was selected as the recipient of a $7,500 grant for virtual programming from the COVID-19 Response Initiative of Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. This grant supports CPC’s Children and Families Supervised Visitation Program (CFSVP), which has transitioned to providing virtual visits to continue its vital services during the pandemic. CPC has seen a sharp increase in the number of visits being performed, despite a reduction of funds. 100 virtual visits were conducted in the month of April and 109 in the month of May, while 746 visits took place in fiscal year 2019. “Seeing families reunited is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I have seen that most parents just want a second chance and will do what it takes to make that happen,” said a CFSVP volunteer.
