A blue-ribbon committee convened last year to study children's services in Los Angeles County has concluded that a 20-member Children's Planning Board is "urgently" needed to coordinate the 1,300 private and public agencies serving children in the area. "All of these agencies are looking at their own programs, doing the very best they can, completely oblivious to everybody else," committee chairman David W. Fleming said Monday as he released the panel's conclusions.

Luz Maria Ricardo remembers the repeated interrogations by strangers after her father murdered two of her siblings. As an 11-year-old who had been abused, she was forced to relive her father's beatings time and time again.

"You go to a new agency, they ask about it.

The number of babies reported as being born addicted to drugs in Los Angeles County dropped by 10% during 1990, the first decrease since such statistics have been kept, according to a study to be released today. Experts called the finding encouraging, but also cautioned that the statistics may reflect, at least in part, a decline in reporting. As one county doctor said, "The battle is not won."

The Sept. 8 article documenting the positive changes in services to children and families in Los Angeles County since the arrival of Director Peter Digre was an insightful message. His leadership, however, has not been limited to the Department of Children's Services. For too long, child welfare agencies have struggled to stem the tide of child maltreatment without reaching out to collaborate with other agencies. Digre has given children a better chance because he knows his department must be part of a larger safety net. As one example, Digre worked with 12 agencies to develop the nation's first computerized interagency high-risk family and children's index.
