INDIANAPOLIS - You can now download a set of changes proposed for the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) by the Indiana House Democratic Caucus.
These recommendations were guided by the following four principles:
- to ensure that all children who need services and intervention are in the system;
- to make sure the right assessment for each child is made the first time;
- to ensure placement for each child is the right one; and
- to make sure services are offered that meet the needs of the child as early as possible and as long as needed for the child to live a happy, healthy, well-adjusted childhood.
Thank you for your continued interest in the legislative process and in the effort to alter procedures at DCS that will improve the services we provide to children who need our help.
