(MADISON) – The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) recently expanded its communication channels to include a newTwitter account aimed at providing Wisconsin families, foster youth, agency partners, and interested citizens with timely information about DCF efforts to improve the economic and social well-being of Wisconsin’s children, youth and families.

“By providing this additional communication resource, we hope that families will have better knowledge of the services offered by the Department and our partners,” said DCF Secretary Eloise Anderson. “We aim to equip families with tools to assist them in their efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and to help children thrive. Every family faces unique challenges, but by informing families of DCF’s mission and the tools and services available, we hope to put them in the best position to be successful.
