Change in Large Child Welfare Systems (Workshop 10)
Illinois set upon a new strategy for improvement in child welfare outcomes for children and families in 1994. This workshop presents the critical strategies for change and examines how each played a role in overall system improvement. The results have far outstripped change in any other state. After peaking at more than 53,000 children in 1997, foster care caseloads now number under 20,000.
