State Gets Grant For Children And Families

Cheyenne, Wy – The Department of Family Services is hoping to complete an ambitious study. Agency director Roger McDaniel says it could lay out a roadmap for how to improve the lives of children and families in the state. He says that's possible because the study will involve individuals directly affected and the goal is broad. The study got a boost recently when the McMurry Foundation donated 100 thousand dollars to the effort. The legislature will debate a bill that will fund an additional 200 thousand dollars.
