Foster Care Sexual Abuse

Sexual Abuse Law Firm Dedicated to Victims of Foster Care Abuse

According to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System, there were over 400,000 children currently in the foster care system at the end of 2008. While the foster care system can often be a safe haven for these children and can facilitate loving homes who do their best to care for these children, it is a sad truth that often these children become the victims of abuse. Already in a place of emotional distress, taken previously from an abusive home, they are then placed in what is meant to be a place of healing and recovery. It is therefore a sad truth that instead of being given a place to heal and move forward in a healthy environment, they are instead submitted to even more trauma in the form of such treatment. Whether they are victims of neglect, physical abuse or sexual abuse, these children do not deserve to be continually treated in such a manner. Yet, often, they are silent victims in their plight. It’s nearly impossible to fully grasp the extent of their abuse in such an unstable and mostly hidden program, as the home is private to public eyes.
