DCFS - Innovations and Call to Action
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is one of the most reformed child welfare systems in the world. As a result of this reform we have been able to drastically reduce the number of children in our foster care system. By employing innovative practices, we currently are able to serve many children and families in their home environment. We also recognize the importance of engaging the community in this critical work. Please view the video vignettes below for examples of this reform, our current innovative work with children and families, and a call to action.
