The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is reeling from recent deaths of children in Illinois and a report that lays bare the trouble the agency is in. Governor JB Pritzker says a recent report on DCFS from the University of Chicago is telling of what a hollowed out state agency looks like and moving forward it’s his full commitment to make DCFS better. 

The report says that DCFS’s commitment may to be strong to keep families in tact that it leads to dangerous situations for kids. DCFS will now also bring an immediate review to high risk cases.
