Community Children's Councils

The Community Children’s Councils serve children and families including those with disabilities and mental health needs through collaborative partnerships. Fully supported collaborative partnerships require equal participation and shared responsibilities of families, local providers, community stakeholders and representatives.

About the councils


One of the key partnerships in the development of a full array of services to special needs children and their families, the Community Children’s Councils are led by parent and professional co-chairs and include representation from public and private child-serving agencies and other community members such as recreational services, businesses, churches and others.

The Community Children's Council Office (CCCO) provides technical and administrative support to the 17 councils, including information gathering and dissemination, logistical assistance for conferences and workshops, training in leadership and facilitation, and providing technical assistance and support.
