Location:

Detroit, Michigan

Initial Funding:

October, 1997

Focus:

The overall goal of the Community Partnership of Southwest Detroit is to develop a system of care within the grant community that is family-driven and culturally competent, and that offers a full continuum of individualized case-coordinated services across multiple service systems. Towards this end, the project seeks to develop a complete system of care for children with serious emotional disturbance and their families; provide individualized wraparound services to more than 400 children and their families; demonstrate the use of a blended funding and support managed care model; link the model with the State behavioral health managed care plan; strengthen individual families and child-parent advocacy organizations in Southwest Detroit; and implement an automated plan of care and financial management software.

Population:

 The Community Partnership of Southwest Detroit serves a nine-square-mile area of Southwest Detroit, Michigan. Minorities comprise over half of the area’s population: 32 percent are African-American and 27 percent are Hispanic. The primary target population for the CPSD consists of children between 7 and 22 years of age who are diagnosed with or are believed to have serious emotional disturbance; are presently in or at imminent risk of out-of-home placement; involved in two or more human service systems; and experiencing difficulty in functioning at home, school, and in the community. The secondary target population is any child with serious emotional disturbance who is involved with two or more human service systems, and experiencing difficulty in functioning in two of three areas (home, school, or community); the child does not have to be at imminent risk of out-of-home placement. When the fifth system-of-care assessment was conducted, 170 children were receiving services through the CPSD. According to the project’s quarterly report, juvenile justice referred 156 or 92 percent of the children, 77 percent were male, 55 percent were African-American, and 17 percent were Hispanic.
