A Loop Hole Puts Children At Risk in Palm Beach County – DFCS Strikes Again

In Sunday’s Palm Beach Post on the front page the headline on the front page screamed, ” Sex Offender, other felons ran camps for homeless kids, Operators rake in tax money; no background checks required”
The Sub heading ran “Loophole Puts Children at Risk”
The article was by Michael LaForgia

This article absolutly shows just how corrupt child protective services has become.
The first paragraph states “Palm Beach County paid a convicted child molestor, thieves, drugh dealers and other people with criminal records nearly half a million dollars to run summer camps for homeless and foster children during the past three years.”
One criminal sexuall assualted a 6 year old girl, another took several women for thousands of dollars and another dealt in cocaine in an open air market. All of these criminals rececived tax money to run summer camps for at risk children.
None of them were required to have background checks run.
Ronnie Green: Title President JITA Outreach ministries, Inc.
Camp: Nu- Attitude Development Center
His Background: Registered sex offender, arrested 30 times between 1981 and 2007. Pleaded guilty to 10 counts of attempted sexual battery of a child younger than 12 in 1994
While in prison he Found “God” and is trying to have his record expunged.

Artie Williams
Title Vice President for Mothers against Murderers Association Inc
Camp : Kids with Dreams
Background : Convicted twice of running an organized scheme to defraud

Bishop Edgar Allen Title Vice President Full Gospel Fellowship Ministries Inc
Camp Full Gospel Children of Purpose
Background: Now a Pastor Allen had been convicted of 23 felonies betwee 1966 and 1994 – says his criminal past helps him counsel children.

Since 2007 617 homeless, foster kids or disadvantaged kids have attended camps run by people with criminal records- felony records- The County paid 4473,059.50 to these criminals in tax dollars, grants and contributions.
The loophole is this:
State statutes require background screening for summer camp owners and operators but hold no agency responsible for running checks
Because the law specifically exempts summer camps from licensing requirements DCF (Department Children and Family Services) has no regular jurisdiction over the business, but thy are empowered to create rules for summer camps – but they haven’t done so.

Now Child Protective Services will not hesitate to go in a snatch a child if they feel like it for now reason from a parent who is struggling to make ends meet- doing the best they can with what they have. But yet, they allow children to go to camps where there are sex offenders who are in charge.
There is something seriously wrong with this picture. When County officials were presented this information they gave a myrid of excuses, Claudia Tuck director of the county’s Human Resources division wrongly stated that a law that took effect this year would allow DCF to run checks on camp owners and operators. When she was asked for a list of camp employees who interacted with kids she refused to turn it over.
The article was over two pages long and no one not the county- not DCF no one has accepted responsbility for this gross abuse of children who can not defend themselves. This in itself is criminal.
It is time to clean house. Time to take back our children-

  10. hate corruption says:

    CPS needs to be audited! See Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (hero)! Palm Beach county TOTALLY ignores abuse. I am a mother with no record of abuse, neglect, drugs, alcohol, or mental issues whatsoever AND I have evidence including: pictures, police reports, teacher reports, GAL reports, Psychology reports, previous loss of custody for abuse, protective orders and a four year documented calendar of abuse substantiated by doctors reports, school nurse etc. and the step mother with a record of violence is now a Guardian AD Litem for children in the SAME 15th judicial Circuit as the court that said she was violent! Yet my children were taken from ME by force TWO YEARS ago and I have not been allowed any contact whatsoever! What is wrong with these people. Do they give children to whoever has the $$$ or what? I WILL get my children back and THEY will be exposed!
