WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The secretary of the Kansas Department for Children and Families says her agency wouldn't place children at foster homes operated by a non-profit until a review of concerns raised by a state lawmaker is completed.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1hft8Mf) reports Phyllis Gilmore wrote a letter to state legislators dated Thursday saying she had instructed the agency's contractors and subcontractors to do no further placements with Faith Builders.

Wichita state Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau contacted DCF staff in August with questions she and others had about the agency's interactions with Faith Builders. Gilmore received the review earlier this month and says more work needs to be done to address DCF's association with the organization.
