Citizen Review Panel
Since 1999, Children Trust Michigan has managed the CRP for Prevention (CRPP). The purpose of the Citizen Review Panel (CRP) is to positively impact the development and improvement of prevention and protective services for children and families. In FY 2020, Children Trust Michigan will continue to support the CRPP Committee including assistance with meeting logistics, development of agendas, assist with speakers, writing and distributing minutes, and drafting the annual report and recommendations. A priority for FY 2020 will be to review and make recommendations on the effect of the opioid crisis on child abuse in your community as well as the child abuse prevention efforts across Michigan. For more information also see the website on the CRPP's at Michigan's Children.
