Topics in Child Welfare and Child Well-being

Certain topics in child welfare and child well-being call for additional attention. For Louisiana’s children the topics include our state having too few foster homes for the number of children in DCFS custody, the use of “placeholder” services that should be more available, insufficient funding for critical prevention services such as Nurse-Family Partnership, and our general concerns about everything that has kept Louisiana ranked 49th on child well-being for more than 30 years.
