ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The director of the Division of Family and Children Services said that the agency is doing a better job of protecting children lately.

Director Bobby Cagle admits Georgia children were in greater danger when severe budget cuts over the last 9 years decimated the agency.

DFCS has hired hundreds of new frontline case workers over the last two years.

"We are much better off today than we were two years ago, and I venture to say this time next year, we'll be better than that. Our goal is continuous improvement," said Cagle.

DFCS is also implementing a new practice model to improve engagement with families.

People can learn more about reforms within the agency and give feedback at a town hall meeting with Director Cagle tomorrow from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Albany Technical College.
