The success of the UNCA Police and Community Engagement Initiative is accomplished by partnering law enforcement, CCCs, and communities to build strong neighborhoods. Who are CCC partners? The UNCA is inviting the following organization types to support their community by joining the CCC:
- Food Banks, Distributors, and Retailers: organizations providing food and water.
- Children & Family Agencies: agencies providing enrichment programs, financial support, education, and counseling to families.
- Faith-based Communities: churches, mosques, temples, and other religious institutions providing spiritual and emotional care, tangible resources, and volunteers to serve (i.e., warehousing, distribution) to support the CCC.
- Non-Profit Organizations: non-profit organizations possessing committed resources for the communities they serve.
- Transportation: companies providing and/or arranging personnel/vessels (truck, aircraft, ships, etc.) to transport critical goods and services.
- Disaster Relief Agencies: agencies providing disaster relief throughout the disaster cycle.
- Legal Organizations: organizations providing pro bono or discounted legal services.

Community Care Coalition (CCC) Overview
Every day, law enforcement professionals are faced with the painful realities experienced within the neighborhoods they serve. Social and economic deficits are often the main contributors to encounters between law enforcement and community citizens. As the first line of critical neighborhood information, police can identify and articulate the community’s needs. The UNCA creates Community Care Coalitions (CCCs) by joining key community stakeholders to support law enforcement in responding to critical issues within their respective neighborhoods.
CCCs are comprised of non-profits, service providers, faith communities, businesses, and other organizations that can support their community’s underlying needs. Under the UNCA’s Police and Community Engagement initiative, CCCs provide efficient service delivery to individuals and families identified by local law enforcement. This combined partnership serves to promote and maintain community morale by proactively resolving unmet needs.
By mid-2021, the UNCA-formed CCC is projected to represent the capabilities of over 500 participating organizations that are ready to partner with law enforcement in assisting communities. With the real-time data provided by law enforcement, the CCC model is designed to eliminate missed opportunities and redundancies between agencies and service providers. The service of CCC members supports law enforcement and communities by:
- Providing effective assistance that comes from the combined contribution of all CCC members;
- Expediting individual, family, and community recovery through the CCC’s sharing of “real-time” data;
- Creating trust between law enforcement and citizens they serve; and
- Reducing violent offenses and damage to community property by proactively assessing.
