April 13, 2017- Child Protective Services Are Improving In New Jersey
Two major incidences in 2003 led to the overhaul of the New Jersey child-welfare system under federal supervision. The discovery of the mummified remains of a 7-year-old boy in 2003, in the basement of a Newark apartment, and later in the same year, finding four boys starving in Collingswood due to their adoptive mother withholding food, prompted the changes. A federal monitor recently reported that the state’s child welfare system has improved across six vital areas. These improvements are moving the Department of Children and Families closer to ending years of federal oversight. The DCF Commissioner attributes the positive changes to dedicated intake workers, adoption staff, and permanency caseworkers who are effectively serving the state’s vulnerable children and families.
