Lawmakers and childcare providers meet over crumbling foster care support

A foster care summit was held today at the Legislative Information Office in downtown Anchorage. Lawmakers, along with state, tribal and federal child advocates, grappled with the high rates of caseworker turn over, burn-out and shortages. John Henderson, with the U.S Department of Health and Human Services children’s bureau, said foster care families aren’t getting the assistance they need to provide for their children.
