How does the Protect MiFamily model improve the well-being of at-risk families?

Evaluating Protect MiFamily

To help keep children safe in their own homes and improve child well-being and family functioning, the Michigan Department of Human Services’ Protect MiFamily program provides intensive and innovative, long-term, home-based services to at-risk families.

The Title IV-E waivers lift some of the restrictions on how states may spend federal dollars intended for foster care placements.

The challenge is to determine how well the Protect MiFamily service model improves the well-being of these families.

Working with the University of Michigan, Westat is conducting the required evaluation of the waiver demonstration.
