DCFS Builds on Successes, Launches Child Welfare Initiative

March 14, 2013

03.14.13 - The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) today announced a new child welfare initiative that focuses on creating lasting connections for children who spend time in protective care. DCFS’s “Faith in Families” initiative seeks to reduce the number of children in foster care, decrease the amount of time children spend in the system and ensure that each child has a permanent connection when they leave foster care.
