Save DCS Training Consortium

Stop the proposed cuts for funding for the Training Consortium for DCS staff and foster parents.

Why is this important?

The new Commissioner of the Department of Children's Services has proposed to cut training costs for her staff and foster parents. This means the end of a contract with state universities that has resulted in improved training, reduces access to federal funds, and creates the probability that the state will be found in contempt of the Brian A. lawsuit settlement agreement.
