This report summarizes the work of Minnesota's Legislative Commission on Children, Youth, and Their Families (LCCYF).

The report begins with an introduction, a vision statement, and background information on the commission. The next section presents highlights of LCCYF's work in 1994; it is followed by a narrative of LCCYF activities in 1994, including: coordination efforts; legislative improvements; consolidation of services; delivery of services; improving educational, social, and health care services; improving the practices of judicial, correctional, and social service agencies; delivery of funding; and evaluation of the need for a new cabinet level agency. This section is followed by a summary section of activities in the previous years of 1991-93.
