Connecting Families, a project of MSPCC, was piloted with the objective of preventing child abuse and neglect before it occurs. Case Managers engaged with struggling families, connecting parents with community supports and basic resources needed to take care of their children. The three year MSPCC pilot served one thousand families and found that families who were able to complete the program were one-third less likely than the comparison group to have a supported child abuse and neglect allegation.
