Jane Hudson: Current legislation for Iowa Juvenile Home is a jobs bill

posted on February 7, 2014

Jane Hudson, executive director of Disability Rights Iowa, says all stakeholders need to be involved in finding a solution for the Iowa Juvenile Home. She says she views current legislation as a jobs bill, not necessarily a plan that is based in sound clinical practice for treating youth. Jerry Foxhoven, who served on the Iowa Juvenile Home task force, says former and current caregivers should evaluate needs of children, not new facilities.
