Reform Child Protective Services while supporting Family Preservation
This petition had 168 supporters
Many families in Iowa are being torn apart because The Department of Human Services is giving non-relative foster/adoptive homes preferential treatment when placing children. Federal dollars are being given to the State to place these children in non-relative care.
Children's mental health, psychological and cognitive development is being impeded in these formative years, research supports children being placed in non-relative homes is detrimental to their future. In one situation a 23 month old child stopped talking when taken from her Grandmother and placed in a Foster Home.
Please support Child welfare reform and Family Preservation.
