    Crime, victimization, and justice system responses greatly affect the life prospects of the most vulnerable Great Lakes youth, restricting their access to ladders of opportunity. This brief describes how crime and justice involvement impact youth development and opportunity generally, and explores the specific crime and justice intervention context in the Great Lakes states. It presents an array of promising and proven policies and practices that have the potential to deliver more safety while reducing juvenile justice and criminal justice involvement and their negative impact on youth. This brief is part of a series recommending policies that will build ladders of opportunity and economic mobility for young people in the six state Great Lakes region—Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

    This report authored by David Cournoyer, provides historical context for the “tenuous” relationship between Michigan’s 12 federally-recognized tribes and the state government, paying particular attention to attempts to erode Native American education programs and the disproportionate number of Native children who find themselves in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.

    Illicit drug use by welfare recipients has been identified as an important barrier to well-being and social performance. This paper uses nationally representative cross-sectional data, and Michigan-specific panel data, to summarize trends in substance use among AFDC/TANF recipients. It also examines the prevalence of drug use disorders within the welfare population. Although almost 20 percent of welfare recipients report recent use of some illicit substance, our analysis indicates that only a small minority of welfare recipients satisfy screening criteria for chemical dependence. The paper concludes by considering policy responses to substance use disorders following welfare reform. (author abstract)
