Child Welfare Reform

A government works best when it values citizen input and protects its most vulnerable residents. Sign our petition to HELP FAMILIES IN CRISIS. Our child welfare system needs reforms, and it is work that cannot wait. Stand up for protecting vulnerable kids and families in Illinois TODAY!

In order to help families in crisis, I've joined with reformers and child-welfare advocates in supporting the following legislative initiatives filed in the Illinois House:

  1. Protect child welfare workers from attacks.
  2. Reform DCFS operations to improve outcomes.
  3. Require background checks for foster parents.
  4. Better financially prepare families to foster.
  5. Better equip grandparents to raise grandchildren.

SIGN OUR PETITION in support of these bills.

Will you sign?
