We are sure learning a lot as we go along. 83% of special needs kids are sexually abused. Out of that less than 3% are ever reported. Group homes are even a higher percentage in which the parents trust the care and guardianship to the caregivers and if reported - where do these kids then go? Back home? Parents are aging and want the security to know their kids are ok without them and not so dependent they can’t make it without them. My daughter is too high functioning to receive assistance thru CMH, she is on Medicare not Medicaid so does not qualify for DHS. We are constantly on the outside looking in. Last week we had 4 different intakes with various agencies and sorry but she doesn’t qualify. We are in the best senecio we can find. 1 mile from our house, remain as her guardian, she works 5 days a week, the ppo is in place, the police investigation is ongoing, and the prosecution preparing for court!
