Mission Statement

The mission of Safe Passage is to reform the Minnesota child welfare system so children are safe and reach their full potential.

Description

Safe Passage recruits volunteers to lobby local and state elected officials in a grass roots campaign to improve the child welfare system. We train them to use reports that highlight key state and county performance measures.

Our goal is to introduce legislation by the 2015 state legislative session to reorient the state's child protection and foster care programs to emphasize early intervention strategies. Research and practice indicate that early intervention means:

1.Children will be protected as early as possible 2.More families will remain intact 3.As few children as possible will experience out-of-home placements
