NY: State’s top child welfare agency is doing bad job overseeing foster care providers, DiNapoli study says
New York Daily News – July 21, 2017
“The agency is not ensuring that caseworkers are making timely and frequent contact with children, their parents and their foster parents,” DiNapoli said. “While the demands on the agency are significant, oversight needs to be improved.” “This audit contains fundamental and egregious errors in the interpretation of state regulations,” the agency said in a statement.
