Strengthening Our Focus on Children & Families
Through a clearly defined mission, vision, and guiding principles, we demonstrate an unwavering commitment to engage and partner with the families we serve. Using a trauma-informed lens, we strive to ensure the safety and well-being of children and find them permanent homes.
Michigan is strengthening its focus on children and families by implementing strategies to make long-term systemic improvements. These strategies include three primary components:
- Enhanced, trauma-informed MiTEAM Practice Model
- Continuous quality improvement approach
- Development of a performance-based child welfare system
