Today, the LA County Board of Supervisors will vote today on whether to sever ties with Teens Happy Homes. The foster care agency has a documented history of child abuse and misappropriating funds. 

Garrett Therolf, the LA Times reporter who broke the story, joins the show with an update. 

Regardless of how the board votes, has Teens Happy Homes already given foster care system in LA a black eye? With more we're joined by Dilys Garcia, executive director of Court Appointed Special Advocates in Los Angeles.
