Minority Children in Foster Care

"A new report examining why so many minority children are ending up in foster care and what can be done to change that "is all about action," state Human Services Director Marianne Udow said Tuesday.The report from the Michigan Advisory Committee on the Overrepresentation of Children of Color in Welfare says that, not only are too many minority children ending up in foster care, but they fare worse than other children once they are under state supervision."For too many African-American children, there is a 'slippery slope' leading from children's protective services to juvenile detention - even prison," the report says."
