What Is The Place Matters Initiative?

Maryland’s Place Matters Initiative is intended to maintain strong bonds between families and children while the children are in group home settings. This means, among other things, that there is an emphasis on having children in group home settings for the minimum time necessary and maximizing the time a child spends with their family.

The Place Matters Initiative is reliably producing positive outcomes for children in Maryland. If you suspect that a group home is working in a manner that is contrary to the Place Matters Initiative, seek the input of an experienced group home abuse attorney.
