R.I. shuts down group home for teen boys in Johnston

State officials have shut down a group home for teenage boys in Johnston pending an investigation into allegations that the toilets and showers were not working and that some of the boys had been confined for hours inside a sweltering common room last week following a report that clothing was being stolen.

    Ok number one - I can DEFINITELY see your point that child protective services needs work to say the least. This, however; does NOT mean that ALL group homes and/ or people placing kids in group homes are bad. I for one know of at least one Gold Standard where the kids come first. PERIOD. End of discussion. Please- I would ask that you not Lump all Child advocates, social workers, child care experts, group home staff into the same lump of people as the ones who have failed in some way. - Gandhi put it best - "BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD"
