Safe Passage for Children of Minnesota

The mission of Safe Passage for Children of Minnesota is to rebuild the Minnesota child welfare system so children are safe and reach their full potential. The goal of Safe Passage is a child protection and foster care system in Minnesota that continuously improves the lives of children, as demonstrated by objective, measurable outcomes. If the system is working well, children’s outcomes will improve over time.
