Troubled DCFS Outlines Major Overhaul, But Budget Crisis Could Hurt Plans

 

In ambitious effort to repair Illinois’ beleaguered child welfare system, state officials have laid out a wide-ranging reform plan that includes extensive worker retraining, expanded access to mental health services and a substantial reduction in the number of juvenile wards in residential treatment centers.

The plan by the state Department of Children and Family Services comes at the behest of a federal judge and a court-appointed panel of experts who concluded that an urgent, sweeping transformation of the embattled agency is necessary — an effort the state’s lingering budget stalemate could undermine, even with a court order protecting the agency’s funding.
