    David N. Matlock was appointed Secretary of the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) on January 8, 2024. Secretary Matlock previously served as Chief Judge of the Juvenile Court for Caddo Parish from 1999 until his retirement in June 2023. First elected to serve as judge in 1994, he has been praised for proactive, trauma-informed approaches to handling the adversities facing Louisiana families. 

    Secretary Matlock is excited and optimistic about his new position. As a former juvenile judge, he brings a unique perspective to the role—understanding the court side of the child welfare system. He is concerned about the DCFS attrition rates, especially at the local level, and the high caseloads carried by DCFS workers. His priorities include focusing on supporting judges, addressing DCFS workforce issues, and addressing the shortage of foster homes. Please join us for this special CIP Café and opportunity to hear directly from the new head of DCFS.

    Speaker:

    • David N. Matlock, J.D., Secretary of the Department of Children and Family Services
    With facilitators:
    • Storm Ehlers, J.D., Deputy Judicial Administrator of the Division of Children and Families at the Louisiana Supreme Court
    • Mark Harris, J.D., Executive Director, Pelican Center for Children and Families

    Agenda:

    12:00-12:20 pm   Background and Perspective

    12:20-12:50 pm   Priorities, Strategies, and Collaborations

    12:50-1:00 pm     Questions & Discussion


    Objectives:

    • Be introduced to the new Secretary for the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
    • Understand the current DCFS priorities applicable to child welfare and legal stakeholders.
    • Learn about the planned strategies the agency will use and collaboration opportunities for child welfare partners.


    This training is free and is designed for all judges, private adoption attorneys, adoption agencies, clerks of court, foster parents, social workers, educators, faith-based leaders and child welfare stakeholders.
