MEDIA RELEASE : MDCPS safely reduces number of children in state custody


Mississippi currently cares for 700 fewer children and teenagers in foster care than it did 14 months ago thanks to a successful three-pronged effort to reunify families, remove obstacles to adoption and avoid removal of children from birth parents – all while keeping the safety and protection of these children an over-arching priority.
