FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – Friday was for blunt honesty and desperate pleas.
A recent federal report gave Kentucky’s foster care system a failing grade in every area, and its worst rating was for finding children a permanent home.
Governor Matt Bevin and the First Lady joined the leaders from the Cabinet of Health and Family Services on Friday for a foster care summit.
The goal was to explain the problems Kentucky faces and ask more families to adopt.
“We should all be shocked appalled and feel shamed,” Adria Johnson, the commissioner of the Department for Community Based Services said.
