Annual Reports of the Office of the Child Advocate (OCA).
On December 12, 2023, Public Act 303 of 2023 changed the name of the office to the Office of the Child Advocate. The OCA publishes an Annual Report each year reporting on statistics from the prior calendar year. The Annual Report also includes the recommendations made to MDHHS, MDHHS responses to the recommendations, and any systemic recommendations.
Below are the annual reports for the last five years. Annual reports published prior to the 2023 calendar year were published under the Office of Children's Ombudsman. The OCA continues to have historical annual reports dating back to 1997. A historical annual report can be requested by contacting the OCA.
