The 110th Congress has taken important, bipartisan, bicameral steps toward improving the lives of children and youth who experience abuse and neglect. The Fostering Connections to Success Act (H.R. 6307), unanimously passed in the House, and the Finance Committee Chairman’s Mark of a similar bill, moving towards passage in the Senate, have a number of provisions in common that will help promote safety, permanency and well-being for children and youth in foster care.
