Description

An Asbury Park Press series is "an investigation into systematic failures at tine New Jersey child protection agency, called the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS)." The investigation finds "how the agency fails to protect children , puts them in harm's way and has been unable to overhaul itself despite a two-year, $128 million "reform" effort." The series reveals that 39 children under the supervision of the agency have died for two years. The key findings also include that "children were found to be staying in foster care longer, minority children were being placed in group homes at an alarming rate, and there was no legislative or public oversight of the agency, which one state senator deemed "out of control."
