Yesterday I released
the following statement regarding a Child Welfare League of America (CWLA)
report on the Department of Children and Families (DCF):
“The long awaited report by the Child Welfare League of America offers many needed recommendations that the Department of Children and Families and the legislature should swiftly institute. It’s important to have sufficient funding, but it needs to be accompanied with meaningful reforms that won't allow one person or a hundred people at DCF to fail to act in the best interests of the children and families in the care of the agency.
The legislature and the Governor have little time to react to the report before the legislative session ends in July, but we need to ensure that the best interest of the state’s most vulnerable children are met. Too much time has passed already.”
