Location:

Minot, Bismarck, and Fargo regions, North Dakota

Initial Funding:

September and November 1994

Focus:

The goals of the Partnerships Project are to implement a comprehensive array of community services at each site that result in reduced use of residential care and hospital treatment; to involve families as full partners in the planning and implementing of services; and to provide better treatment outcomes for children and families by collaborating across agencies in the implementation of individual service plans.

Population:

The grant indicates that there are 97,508 children in the three Partnerships Project regions. This comprises 61% of the total child population of North Dakota and 40% of Native American children. 8,769 North Dakota children are estimated to have serious emotional disturbances. The target population is children with serious emotional disturbances who have been placed in out-of-home care or are at-risk of placement and their families; have a DSM IV diagnosis; have a GAF below 50; have problems lasting longer than one year; require the involvement of 2 or more agencies; and are under 21 years old. In 1998, 133 children and their families were being served in the 10-county region, an increase in the numbers served at any one time during the previous grant years. The population of Region VII is predominately white (97%). Native Americans comprise approximately 80 percent of the population of Sioux County and 3 percent of the overall population of the region. Approximately 11 percent of the children and families served by the Partnerships Project are Native American.
