Child Welfare Reform Efforts

A November 2013 article in the Chronicle of Social Change, "The Many Faces of Federal Child Welfare Reform," outlines several national child welfare reform proposals that could have a significant impact on how the government supports vulnerable families. It lists the key individuals and organizations involved with the efforts and provides background information, including why the efforts may be necessary and how they may assist children and families. The article highlights reforms in the following areas:

  • Family preservation and flexible title IV-E funding
  • Restricting and improving foster care
  • The adoption incentives program
  • Education funding for youth who age out of foster care

"The Many Faces of Federal Child Welfare Reform," by John Kelly, can be found on the website for the Chronicle of Social Change:
