DC's foster care crisis

Due to a mistaken decision by the Child and Family Services Agency, and total lack of oversight from legislators and advocates, the District lost a number of foster homes.   As a result, children taken into foster care have been sleeping in offices and hotels.   Social worker Marie Cohen saw this happening a year ago but couldn't get anybody to care.   See her column Poor Planning and Lack of Oversight Lead to Foster Care Crisis in District of Columbia.
