Report: 95 children died while under DCF supervision since 2001

See on Scoop.itPublic Law Children Act Cases

The numbers seem shocking: 95 children whose cases were overseen by social workers from the Department of Children and Families have died from abuse or neglect since 2001.

About half of those kids died before their first birthday. That’s according to a DCF report which tracked children and families through 2010.

“When there’s not enough resources to go around, and we have a major cut in the front line workers as well as in the supervisors who are supposed to be really monitor their performance we’re gonna see some of these breakdowns,” said Jetta Bernier, executive director of the child advocacy group Massachusetts Citizens for Children.

DCF has been under the microscope since the disappearance of Jeremiah Oliver, the five-year-old Fitchburg boy who is missing and presumed dead after DCF social workers allegedly failed to check in on him for months.

Since Oliver was discovered missing in December, the social worker assigned to his family and two supervisors were fired.

  1. Dcf could not be more disinterested in reports of abuse. My granddaughters case is a cakewalk but she is permitted drug abuse and torture by her parents. A drug test is all thats needed. Our family saw her last 17 months ago, and her parents post photos of her dopesick and high on the internet. I guess her parents dealer friend being a cops daughter has nothing to do with it? She will die and I will be reporting it to the very end, even though I have been threatened with arrest for harassment. The agency is populated with sick, twiested abusers. God sees all. They will be judged.
