Child Welfare Issues in the 108th Congress

Description:

Child welfare services are intended to protect children who have been abused
or neglected or are at risk of maltreatment. These services take various forms,
ranging from counseling and other supports for parents — which are intended to
improve child well-being and prevent child abuse and neglect — to removal of the
children from their homes. At the most extreme, these services include termination
of parental rights and placement of the children for adoption. This report describes child welfare legislative issues in the 108th Congress.
