Fewer PA Children Living in Foster Homes

Pennsylvania court officials say the number of abused and neglected children living in foster homes is declining because of stepped-up efforts to put them in safe, permanent homes.  
The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts said Thursday that there are now about 14,000 foster children, compared to 21,000 six years ago.
State Supreme Court Justice Max Baer, who is spearheading efforts to improve the system, says judges and child-welfare workers are collaborating on the effort to reduce the number of children in foster care.
More than 400 court and child welfare officials gathered this week for the Children's Roundtable Summit in western Pennsylvania to hear from national experts as well as children and family members formerly in the child welfare system.
