While foster care is difficult enough for a child to endure – it is even more difficult when the child experiences sexual abuse. For these children, sexual abuse can go on for years while they are in foster care because they don’t know whom to trust anymore or whom to tell.

Some children are placed in inappropriate homes or facilities for the convenience of the county or the facility operator.

Sexual abuse can happen at the hands of a “caretaker”, household family member or fellow foster child. It can even happen at the hands of a trusted community member like a teacher, coach or minister.

Every child in foster care deserves to be in a safe, secure and healthy environment.

If you or your child have/has been sexually abused while in foster care, notify law enforcement and learn your legal rights by contacting the Law Offices of Robert M. Wilson. We offer a no-cost, no-obligation and completely private consultation.
