LITTLE ROCK, Ark.
— The foster care working group Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders established by Executive Order today released eleven recommendations to improve Arkansas’ foster care system.
“I often say that Arkansas is the most pro-life state in the country – but the pro-life agenda doesn’t end once a child is born. Our foster care system has the potential to put every child in Arkansas in a safe, loving home, which is why I created a working group to make it even better,”
said Governor Sanders.
“I applaud these advocates on their hard work and excellent proposals, and look forward to working with them to turn these recommendations into reality.”
Governor Sanders tasked the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) with bringing together Every Child Arkansas, the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Education, and expert stakeholders to develop this plan. A detailed report of their recommendations is available on both the DHS website and the Every Child Arkansas website.
