DCYF needs new leadership now

DCYF needs new leadership now:
Every year, various studies, audits and reports on State services are released in New Hampshire, and most see a day or two of press coverage before they are filed on a shelf in the State Library. But the Center for the Support of Families report on DCYF — the Division of Children, Youth and Families — released in December, is one that cannot be so easily dismissed. Its recommendations need to be the basis for systemic changes to an agency that has failed our most vulnerable citizens.

My Comment: Just a decade ago, under Maggie Bishop's direction, any and all report's of child abuse and neglect, no matter how frivolous, wound up tearing apart many families needlessly. Children were removed from not only their parent's but their entire family as well. Relative placement of these children was never even considered, but the Federal incentive money kept rolling in even though Federal mandates weren't being followed. Once a child was removed, they were never returned, even when innocence was proven. Why should ALL families again suffer because DCYF and the Judge messed up on these two cases?
