The Monument Community Partnership (MCP) is a community change organization that promotes the capacity of residents of the Concord Monument Community to achieve their self-defined goals. The MCP is also a broad-based coalition of residents, human service agencies, health service agencies, the school district, city government, and local business owners. It is designed to improve the well-being of people who live in the Monument community, a severely under-resourced neighborhood in the heart of Concord, California.
MCP works to involve residents of all ages, ethnicities, and immigration status as equal partners with local public and private organizations in productive, action-based collaboration. Through four primary programs and five focus areas, the MCP strives to improve the quality of life for Monument community residents and local businesses by developing leadership and engagement skills and promoting a more effective voice for all stakeholders.
