Are family preservation policies hurting DCF?
The deaths of four small children in six weeks last year brought renewed scrutiny to Florida's Department of Children and Families (DCF). Miami Herald reporters explored why many children died after DCF intervened. The majority of the children in the investigative series, Innocents Lost, passed away as a result of abuse or neglect, according to DCF reports.
