Services of Grand Rapids. After the conclusion of Independent Living, she testified in
court that:
1. She was, allowed to live with her boyfriend.
2. When she complained to HCCS Caseworker 1 that her boyfriend was abusing
her and hitting her, HCCS Caseworker 1 told her that she needed to “suck it up”
because it was all that she had.
3. When she became pregnant, HCCS Caseworker 1 told her that this was "god's
punishment for premarital sex.”
