Winona County Citizen Review Panel Activities (continued)

Due to the resignation of several panel members, the panel continues to recruit and screen new members: five members joined the panel in August.

Winona County Citizen Review Panel Vision and Action Priorities:

With the addition of the new members, the panel spent two months working on the vision of the panel and prioritizing action items for individual members and possible committees to address over the coming year. Below are the priorities of the Winona County Citizen Review Panel for 2007-2008.

Citizen Review Panel members will focus on the following topics:

Committee: Collaborate with the National Child Protection Training Center at Winona State University

Purposes for addressing this topic:

  • Learn what this organization does.

  • Determine if and how the child protection system in Winona County collaborates with the National Child Protection Training Center.

  • See how the Citizen Review Panel might support the work of the National Child Protection Training Center.

  • Educate others in the child protection system and our community about the resources and work of the National Child Protection Training Center.

Desired outcome: Help protect children in Winona County from abuse and neglect by collaborating and cooperating with the National Child Protection Training Center (NCPTC).

Plan:

  • Invite a NCPTC representative to come and make a presentation to the panel about the training center and Matty’s Place.

  • Pursue getting a panel member on the planning board of Matty’s Place to be a liaison between the Panel and Matty’s Place.

Committee: Support for relative child-care-givers.

Purposes for addressing this topic:

  • Learn what services and supports are available in Winona County to relatives who are involved with the Winona County child protection system and are caring for children who are not able to live with their parents.

  • Advocate for needed services for relative care-givers.

  • Monitor the implementation of recommendations that may result and be made to the Winona County Department of Human Services and the Minnesota Department of Human Services to help meet the needs of relative care-givers.

  • Educate others in our community about the needs of relative care-givers and the children in their care.
