INDIANAPOLIS (May 7, 2018) – The Department of Child Services (DCS) announced today Andria Hoying is the new deputy director of placement support and compliance. In her role, Hoying supports partners, providers and DCS field staff on being compliant with state law. In addition, she will lead the interstate compact on the placement of children and the Central Office Background Check Unit (COBCU).
“Ensuring safe and appropriate placements for children is an important aspect of child welfare and often comes with unique challenges,” Hoying said. “I am excited and extremely humbled by this opportunity to serve Indiana’s most vulnerable children and families.”
Previously, Hoying worked for DCS for almost five years in the placement support and compliance division. She left the agency to consult on organizational planning efforts before returning to DCS last year as the assistant deputy director of placement support and compliance.
“Andria brings a wealth of experience into her new role,” said Terry Stigdon, DCS director. “She will make sure we continue to collaborate with relatives, foster families and agencies to guarantee the safety of children.”
Hoying has a master’s degree in public administration from Ball State University. She resides in Noblesville with her husband and their 3-year-old daughter.
