The pandemic has served to highlight the shortcomings of the state’s child welfare system. Child advocates have long called for more oversight, transparency and accountability for the state agencies responsible for the safety of children. We talk with June Ameen, Policy Director at Friends of Children and Marianna Litovich, foster parent and Founder/Executive Director of All our Kids about ways to improve the child welfare system to ensure children are safe and thriving.
