6 million children are reported to child protection services in the U.S. each year (58,000 in MN) MN ranks 47th for amount spent on children in child protection. The impact of this issue on our communities is significant in dollars and quality of life. Troubled schools, unsafe streets and prison growth are only a few of the problematic out growths of poor public policy towards at risk youth.
Only a fraction of abused children receive the help they need to lead productive lives. In MN 29% of children in protective services are sent back into abusive homes. 80% of these children are abused again while under court supervision & nationally, 80% of children aging out of foster care lead dysfunctional lives.
