Welfare agency sees changes as hope for turnaround



May 16, 2018 - 11:00 PM

Some 20 administrators in the Kansas agency managing child welfare and state assistance have been promoted, fired or shifted to other posts since November.

Gina Meier-Hummel was tapped to take over the Department for Children and Families nearly six months ago and says now that the changes have been aimed at strengthening the agency as it confronts a rising caseload of children in care.

The agency also dismissed two staff members in the Wichita regional office earlier this spring in response to “concerning trends” in the region.
