State Rep. Antonio Cabral of New Bedford says he expects much debate at the State House this week on providing more funding for the embattled Department of Children and Families.

Democrat Cabral tells WBSM News, he supports funding for D-C-F to hire more social workers, but knows there will be opposition....

D-C-F Commissioner Olga Roche resigned her post on Monday after House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Therese Murray called for her to be replaced.

Two children in Fitchburg and Grafton died recently while their cases were being monitored by D-C-F.
