PA Auditor General Continues Child Welfare Review With Look At Obscure Agency

Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale is launching a review of a little-known government agency that hears appeals to cases of child abuse and neglect. The review is a continuation of DePasquale’s work focusing on the commonwealth’s child welfare system. A 2016 audit found the state’s hotline for reporting child abuse and neglect was so understaffed, tens of thousands of calls went unanswered.
