Our Children, Our Future

The "Our Children: Our Future" project focused on Minnesota children who do not live at home. Wilder Research conducted literature reviews and interviews with professionals in the medical, judicial, education, and corrections fields to learn about these children and how "the system" works. The reports include evidence about the effectiveness of services, the problems and needs identified by professionals, and professionals' opinions about the causes of and potential solutions to over-representation of African American and American Indian children in the welfare, juvenile justice, and youth homelessness systems.
