DEFENDING CHILDHOOD INITIATIVE
I worked with researchers from
The Child and Adolescent Data Lab at the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work to create an informational booklet outlining the Defending Childhood Initiative, an initiative sponsored by the United States Department of Justice and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
This document aims to assist Governor Snyder’s office in understanding the data regarding Michigan's child welfare system by creating clear visuals and concise summaries. These data originate with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
