This inter-departmental newsletter is meant to serve as a communications tool for everyone in the Department. Because of the size of the agency and its many divisions, it's often hard to keep abreast of everything going on. Dialogue will hopefully make it a little easier to keep up. We welcome your articles, announcements and suggestions for inclusion in this newsletter. Please send them to DCFS Office of Communications, 100 West Randolph, 6-200, Chicago, IL 60601, or call (312) 814-6847.
