The Eastern Shore Task Force on Foster Care organized in July 2007 (Chapter 400, Acts of 2007). The Task Force made recommendations to improve the recruitment and retention of foster care parents on the Eastern Shore. It considered what incentives might help in recruiting and retaining foster parents; whether each local department of social services should hire a permanent staff person solely to recruit and provide support for foster parents; and how to fund such staff.

The Task Force submitted an interim report to the Governor and General Assembly in December 2007, and its final report in December 2008. Authorization for the Task Force ended June 30, 2009.
