Victory for Foster Youth and Child Welfare Advocates!

Thursday, March 26

New Mexico foster youth, Disability Rights New Mexico and Native American Disability Law Center have reached an innovative settlement with the State of New Mexico to develop a trauma responsive child welfare system, serving as a national model for states across the country.

The new child welfare system will be built around the principle of trauma-responsiveness and integration of the child welfare and Medicaid systems, and will be the first in the country to recognize and addresses the specific needs and interests of Native children in foster care. #ProtectFosterYouth
