Arkansas lawmakers have approved the allotment of $1 million to improve the state’s foster care system. Some of the money will be used to hire new case workers to help lift the state’s system out of the crisis they are currently experiencing. The current caseload is double the recommended level. Hiring 40 new direct case workers as well as program assistants and qualified supervisors will help lift the load, which will, in turn, provide better care for Arkansas’ children. This extra funding will help ease the crisis, but even with the resources that are in place to care for the kids, even more may be needed.
