DCFS Warns of More Child Abuse and Deaths if Funding Is Not Restored


Child abuse and neglect deaths in Illinois apparently hit a 30-year high in 2012... and the Department of Children and Family Services warns that this year could be even worse unless lawmakers restore millions of dollars to the agency’s budget.

 

DCFS says records confirm 90 abuse and neglect deaths last year, but another 60 cases are still under investigation, which is likely to drive the total even higher.

 

The agency says it will have to lay off more than 19-hundred caseworkers around the state unless the legislature replaces 38-million dollars that was cut from its budget last year.
