Child Protection Program Approved

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming's plan for improving its child welfare services has received federal approval.
When the federal government began its random review of child welfare cases in 2002, none of the 50 states passed. Last week, the U-S Department of Health and Human Services notified Wyoming that it was one of 29 states that met its Program Improvement Plan.
Wyoming's plan strengthened the state's help in finding future living arrangements for children and providing for their well-being.
Governor Freudenthal welcomed the news but says more work to improve the lives of vulnerable children needs to be done.
