Winona County Citizen Review Panel Activities (continued)

Committee: Support for relative child-care-givers (continued)

Desired outcomes:

  • Children cared for by relatives are safe from abuse and neglect and have their needs met.

  • Relative care-givers have the resources and support they need to raise the children.

  • Birth-parents, guardians or relative caregivers are offered the resources they need to support a safe family environment.

Plan:

  • To begin: research the topic and find out what resources are currently in place.

    • o

      Interview people who work in child protection.

      • o

        Invite someone from child protection to address the topic at a panel meeting.

      • o

        Identify laws and resources available.

      • o

        Identify current social work practice.

Committee: How are reports of child abuse or neglect for children with disabilities or special needs (especially those ages zero to five) responded to in Winona County?

Purposes for addressing this topic:

  • There is frustration because it seems as if some young, vulnerable children with special needs are not getting the services they need. Identified services are not always followed up on by their parents and extended families.

  • We would like to look into:

    • o

      When and how can child protection intervene for these children ages 0 to 5?

      • o

        What is the best way to intervene and make sure these children and families get the services needed?

      • o

        How can we keep these children from “falling through the cracks?”

      • o

        When does the lack of follow through become child abuse or neglect?

  • Educate others in our community about children ages zero to five with special needs.

Desired Outcome: Children, ages zero to five and with special needs, get the services and care they need.

Plan:

  • To begin: research the topic and find out what resources are currently in place.

    • o

      Interview people who work in child protection.

      • o

        Invite someone from child protection to address the topic at a panel meeting.

      • o

        Identify laws and resources available.

      • o

        Identify current social work practice.

Training: New panel members received orientation training during the September meeting date.
