Includes: Foster Care Hotline Investigation; Foster Care Quality Assurance: Training Foster Parents; Foster Care Transitional Aged Youth Vocational Training.

Findings: Some 80% of calls to the hotline come from mandated reporters, a majority of them originating in schools. DCFS must take steps to screen out inappropriate calls.

More than half of all court proceedings result in removal from the home of a parent or guardian. Sending an 18 year old foster ward into adulthood without support "is government sanctioned child abuse."
