Some Reform Thoughts for Your Consideration

As the current keeper of the website NFPCAR.org, I thought I would share some thoughts about possible reform. Please note, these are not called Problems, but instead are Our Concerns. A positive term for such a devastation to our families.

Here are the Concerns listed on these pages. (Link: http://nfpcar.org/Reform/Concerns/Our%20Concerns.htm). Many of these were suggested from our discussion group. Although many are from the point of view from Foster Care Givers Falsely Accused, they may be applicable to ALL who have been touched by the agency. Feel free to make comments and even suggest others.

1. Foster parents who are in the process of adopting their foster child are too often faced with "false” allegations. Learn More....

2. Social Workers waste no time in placing the foster caregiver’s name on the State Child Abuse Registry...WITHOUT ANY PROOF of wrongdoing...WITHOUT A TRIAL in a court of law...WITHOUT any “due process” at all. Learn More....
This State Central Index is the SAME registry that CONVICTED child molesters and sex offenders are placed on.

3. Many new social workers entering the system in this day and age are young, inexperienced and have no compassion for searching for the truth. Learn More....

4. Social Workers already in the system and working in this field should be REQUIRED to undergo mandatory psychological reviews on a regular basis. Learn More....

5. Social Workers MUST be required to disclose to the accepting foster caregiver family “any” and “all” pertinent information on the child being placed with them. Learn More....

6. Make foster caregivers part of the periodic court review of foster children in their care. Learn More....

7. Establish a Law Enforcement task force to assist in Child Abuse investigations. Learn More....

8. Undertake more truthful and comprehensive training for foster parents. Learn More....

9. Agencies should be required to provide Foster Parents with legal services. Learn More....

10. Establish a State and separate county CITIZEN'S REVIEW BOARD. Learn More....

11. Social workers are always complaining that they are over-worked, under-paid and don’t have the time required to do their job completely and efficiently. Learn More....

12. Suggestions for Child Welfare Agency Reform.* Learn More....
