DCYF Crisis Timeline
More has happened during 2019, and we are in the process of updating our Timeline. While there have been some legislative efforts put forth to increase the amount of caseworkers, little has been done beyond that to address flaws in the system from a policy perspective.
The majority of this timeline was sourced from an article by Michael S. Lewis that was written for NH Business Review which can be found here. The state of Child Protective Service was described as The Greatest Civil Rights Crisis in NH History.
