Protect MiFamily

Protect MiFamily is a 15-month in-home prevention and preservation service for families with children ages 0-5 who are facing challenges that put them at high risk for future Children’s Protective Services (CPS) involvement.

The five-year project enables the state to use Title IV-E funds to test innovative strategies that prevent child abuse and neglect, avert foster care entry and re-entry, speed reunification, and improve child safety and well-being, rather than spending those dollars on the placement of children into licensed foster care. Through this project, it is our goal to help parents meet the needs of their young children and increase safety in their homes.
