For almost seventy years we believed that our most important job was to protect vulnerable children from their families. During those years, vulnerable children were removed from their homes and many of those children never returned to their families until they were eighteen.
We have since learned that children need the identity and the sense of belonging that comes from being a member of a family. Going forward, vulnerable children won’t be removed from their families for long periods of time. The Families First Prevention Services Act ensures that.
