Jamarr's Promise: A True Story of Corruption, Courage, And Child Welfare

157 pages2 hours


Jamarr’s Promise is the shocking personal memoir of social worker Kristin I. Morris’ fight to protect a nine-year-old child, Jamarr Cruz, that ended in his tragic murder and New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS)’s denial of its responsibility in the case. Through its exposure of the events leading up to Jamarr's death, and the subsequent cover-up, readers will experience the true horror of the inner workings of the DYFS. The authors' goal is to end corrupt loyalties in New Jersey’s DYFS, to protect children from Jamarr’s fate, and to promote child welfare. It is a call for justice for Kristin Morris, who did the right thing and was punished unjustly for it.
