Department of Health and Human Services failed to accommodate disabilities by using a one-size-fits-all family reunification plan, says MSC

The Department of Health and Human Services may not use a standard family plan when attempting to reunify families in probate matters, said the Michigan Supreme Court in In re Hicks, No. 15378.  Specifically, the Court held that the Department has not complied with its duty to make reasonable efforts at family reunification when it fails to modify its services to reasonably accommodate a parent with a disability.
