Hennepin County - DOCCR: Trauma-Informed, Culturally Specific Programs, 2019 Annual Summary

Wilder Research worked with the Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation to develop culturally specific, trauma-informed programs for African American male-identified youth, and to evaluate the implementation and benefits of these programs, with a focus on preventing and intervening in juvenile justice system involvement. Funding from the Hennepin County Children’s Mental Health Collaborative supports the evaluation of the three programs. This is a summary of the second year of findings of a three-year collaborative effort. Wilder Research interviewed program participants, program staff, and referral sources and analyzed data on program participation in order to understand implementation of and preliminary outcomes for the programs.
