PRICE:  FOSTER CARE CRISIS PERSISTS IN GEORGIA

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

A foster care crisis persists in Georgia, according to Floyd County Juvenile Court Judge Greg Price.

The number of Floyd County children in foster care has actually gone down in recent years, says Price.  But numbers have skyrocketed statewide.  There are currently 15,000 kids in foster care across Georgia, as compared to a total of 8,000 back in 2012.

Price attests that drugs, poverty and mental health are among the issues that contribute to the statewide foster care crisis.
