The Child Abuse Industry is a twisted system of financial incentives that rewards county Child Protection Service agencies for placing a huge number of children in foster care– spending from $30,000 to $150,000 for each child per year. This child welfare system has taken thousandsof children away from their parents in cases where it may not have been necessary or advisable, sending them to homes that are more dangerous than the ones they left. Get involved and help change the system before they take your children.

My children were removed five years agofrom my care and placed in my mother’home where she is paid by the government to keep them. Both children were taken 7 months after my son’s leg was accidently broken and I was accused of abuse. Half of my wages are being garnished for past due child support making it impossible for me to make ends meet. I will never give up trying toget custody of my children who want desperately to come home.My dad had health problems and put me voluntarily in CPS custody for two-weeks.Even though he recovered, CPS refused tosend me home. I spent 23 months in a group home where I was prescribed a cocktail of psychiatric drugs. Everyone wondered why I developed behavior & health problems. Now, my dad is an advocate for CPS reform and they retaliated against us by keeping me in the system for so long.I went to the police and CPS while seeking help in a women’s shelter as I firmly believed my son was being molested by his father, who is an attorney. The outcome of me trying to protect my son, caused CPS to immediately give his father custody without any investigation. For the last twoyears, I have had only supervised visitation with my son. Due to this unjust ruling, my son has endured unthinkable acts of sexual abuse and his father’alcoholism. I will not quit fighting for my son’s return and being an advocate for CPS and Judicial reform until this system is 
 
overhauled.
A few victims of the Child Abuse Industry . . .
At 4, I was illegally taken by the police without a warrant from my non-abusive dad and forced into foster care. In my first foster home, I endured sexual and physical abuse. My foster mom, therapist and court appointed attorney brainwashed me to make false statements about my dad. My dad spent thousands of dollars defending himself in Dependency court. Now, my dad’s case plan has been completed for 8 months and hoping to go home very soon.My 7-children were removed from my home and thrust intofoster care when the police arrested my husband who was creating a domestic disturbance.They took all my children because they said I had a dirty home. After fighting in court for more than a year, I lost my home,and all of my possessions to pay for legal expenses. My husband and I were forced to live at thlocal homeless shelter. After one of my children was burned in a scalding hot bath in the foster home, then my 7 children werfinally returned. I can’t believe our own government would treat families this way and make us pay for their mistakes.
A two-year investigation by a Los Angeles Newspaper Group found that the child welfare system has taken thousands of children away from their parents in cases where it may not have been necessary or advisable, sending them tohomes that are more dangerous than the ones they left. This is happening nationwide, not just in Los Angeles.The reason? It appears to be a twisted system of financial incentives that rewards county Child Protection Service agencies for placing a huge number of children in foster care– spending from $30,000 to $150,000 for each child per year. This money comes from our Federal Social Security Trust Fund! The reward system, which one expert called the “perverse incentive factor,” led Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services as well as CPS agencies nationwide to whisk children away from their parents when alternatives to out-of-home placement would have worked better.

This atrocity costs EVERYONE except for the corrupt individuals it profits. Families are separated for title IV-E government funding incentives and by an abuse of power. PLEASE help us perform a NATIONWIDE PROTEST AUGUST 12 across the world and in every state against these human rights violations perpetrated against families for billions of tax payer dollars. FIGHT FOR FAMILY PRESERVATION! More in
