Comment: Domestic Violence Policy & Business Process

Children’s Law Center recently shared comments with the DC Child and Family Services Agency about its domestic violence policy and business process. We’re sharing our comments because at CLC, we serve as guardians ad litem (GALs) for hundreds of children in foster care and represent foster parents and relatives caring for children who are in or at risk of entering the District’s child welfare system. Our comments are offered to assist CFSA in its efforts to develop “policies and practices that reflect a commitment to meeting child needs, reducing the impact of domestic violence on child safety and well-being, engaging the non-offending partner to support the parent-child relationship, and holding the offending partner accountable for the abusive behavior.” Read the full letter below.
