Minnesota's Short-Stayers: A Study of Children Who Have Experienced Short Out-Of-Home-Placement Stays
This research examines short, out-of-home placement stays in foster care, considering whether short stays are warranted or place unnecessary stress and trauma on children, families, and an already burdened system. From 2009 through 2014, a total of 3,327 children in Minnesota experienced out-of-home placement stays of 30 days or less. This report provides insight into this "short-stayer" population to paint a clearer picture of the population.
Wilder TopicChildren, Youth, and Family Child Welfare
The Minnesota Department of Human Services, Child Safety and Permanency Division wanted to gain insight into children placed in out-of-home care for 30 days or less. With support from Casey Family Programs, Wilder Research conducted a study of the "short-stayer" population to paint a clearer picture of these children in the child welfare system.See everything related to this project.
