Jane is the oldest of three siblings. Her mother and father fight often, and she shields her siblings from the abuse and chaos in their home. Exhausted at school, she was written up for sleeping in class.
Jane’s mother senselessly beat Jane for getting in trouble in school and began to strangle her, causing her to almost die. An ambulance was called, and Jane was sent to Children’s Medical Center.
DCAC and our partners investigated the case and provided healing services to Jane and her non-offending family members. Today, Jane and her siblings are safe with their grandmother.
