Abstract The class action known as Katie A. v. Bonta was filed in July 2002. It challenges California’s failure to provide home-based and community-based mental health services to children who are in the foster care system or at risk of removal from their families. Of special concern is California’s practice of confining children with mental health needs in hospitals and large group homes instead of providing services that would enable them to stay in their own homes and communities.
