Working for fairness in foster-care system

Working for fairness in foster-care system

Despite no greater likelihood of abuse or neglect by their parents, African-American children in Marion County are over-represented in the foster-care population. This over-representation or disproportionality has been reviewed nationally and statewide. It is a complex situation that may begin with poverty and must result in a search for fundamental fairness for children in need. Indiana began its work on the issue when the legislature created a Commission on Disproportionality in 2008 to study its impact on foster care and other areas affecting children's well-being.
