Topics in Child Welfare and Child Well-being

Certain child welfare and well-being topics call for additional attention. For Louisiana’s children, these 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, Louisiana’s Coordinated System of Care, and Therapeutic Detention, and our general concerns about everything that has kept Louisiana ranked 49th on child well-being for more than 30 years.
