Public Forum To Improve Kentucky Child Protection Services

Persons with suggestions to improve Kentucky’s system of child protection services will have the opportunity to voice their ideas at a public forum next week in Frankfort. The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services is hosting the forum from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, in room 169 of the Capitol Annex. I hope one object of the forum will be to help the cabinet garner support for a large budge increase from the legislature. Our state’s financial priorities are out of whack. We need social workers and we need them badly.

We need social workers and we need them badly. We don’t need any more social workers killed while walking solo into dangerous situations. And, while it is not the subject of this forum, our judges need more time for these important cases, which means we need more family court judges.
