County tackles growing child welfare caseloads

County tackles growing child welfare caseloads

Large worker caseloads aren’t a new issue for Clark County’s child welfare agency.

In 2007, consultant Edward E. Cotton even suggested that the county’s Department of Family Services establish caseload sizes based on standards set by the Washington, D.C.-based Child Welfare League of America or other national groups, but that recommendation was never followed. Nevada doesn’t have a regulation that caps the number of cases that a social worker is assigned.
