Following a period of careful study, the analysts at the Center for Health Policy at IUPUI have outlined the EIPC’s 2008 plan in this document. These goals address major objectives outlined in the ordinance, including: increase permanency and self-sufficiency among families at risk of abuse and neglect; reduce the number of abuse, neglect, and delinquency cases requiring juvenile court intervention; promote the coordination of available resources and minimizing unnecessary duplication of services; and minimize the cost of addressing the needs of delinquent children.
