Family Law - Program for At-Risk Families

Take a look at MD: Pilot Social Services Program All But Eradicates Child Abuse and Neglect from the Florida Divorce Law Blog:

Montgomery County, Maryland has been conducting a pilot program that has been providing in home services to high risk, first time parents and families.

After ten years in operation, the family services agency there concludes that the program has reduced both child abuse and neglect dramatically, nearly to nonexistence.

Outcomes are actually superior to those in the general population.

Why not this kind of program for Indiana?
