Important Recognition of Foster Care needs by Administration

Posted by lboyd544 on February 20, 2011

Tucked into President Obama’s FY2012 budget that was released last week was a proposal for funding over 10 years to improve the child welfare system in this country. Outcomes such as more services for families and youth, shorter times in out-of-home care, increasing permanency through reunification, adoption, and guardianship, and lower rates of re-entry into foster care are stated goals. Additionally, theĀ President recognized the need to remove unnecessary administrative requirements that impede progress toward these goals for public and private sector providers of services.

Many have been hard at work through various national coalitions of professional child advocate organizations on these goals for some time. It is exciting and encouraging to the President Obama listening, supporting, and leading with us!
