Number of State Wards Decreases Thanks to New Model

According to a story by Nebraska TV, Number of State Wards Decreases Thanks to New Model, there has been a decline in the number of children in foster care. As indicated in the article,
the director of  Children and Family Services in the Department of Health and Human Services ... attributed the decrease to two areas of focus: a new assessment model used to initially assess the risk facing children reported to CFS; and returning custody to parents whose children have been safely living at home.
