Learn more about Muriah Deuth, a new Metro Staff Trainer for the Minnesota Child Welfare Training Academy.
As a child welfare worker in Florida, Muriah worked with hundreds of children and families to achieve safety and the best permanency outcomes possible. Muriah developed a parenting program for parents within the child welfare system in addition to training and supervising the Family Team Conference facilitators. Muriah also organized fundraisers and participated in the roll-out of the new safety methodology practice used throughout the state of Florida. Muriah moved to Minnesota with her daughter in 2019 and started working at Carver County as a Social Worker. During that time, Muriah spent her time learning the ways of child welfare in Minnesota all while navigating remote social work during Covid (with a child learning at home)!
