Hennepin County leads Minnesota in 24/7 child protection response

 

January 23, 2017



For years, some of the most seriously abused or neglected children in Minnesota couldn’t get help from a social worker for days.

Across the state, child protection agencies would shut down on holidays, weekends and late at night. Calls for help would be forwarded to the police or a nonprofit under contract with the county, and information taken down to relay later to a social worker.
