Protecting Children

Chloe is a three year old girl who likes horses and princesses. When she was two, social services discovered that Chloe’s mother was severely physically abusing her. Chloe had bruises over her entire body when she was removed from her mother’s home and placed with Sara, her grandmother. Despite the extreme level of physical abuse Chloe suffered, she was returned to her mother’s home and the abuse resumed. Chloe was placed with her grandmother Sara once again but no formal guardianship petition was filed. Without a guardianship, Sara had no formal right to care for her grandchild, Chloe, and no way to authorize her ongoing medical treatment. With legal assistance from Kids Matter, Sara filed for and obtained guardianship of Chloe. Chloe finally has a stable, safe, and loving home.


Tanya loves basketball. At 13, she was already participating in a highly competitive traveling basketball league. Her parents, though divorced, worked together to get Tanya to school and to practice. One warm April day in 2011, Tanya got up like any other morning. Her mom had already left for work (she thought), and her dad was going to pick her up and take her to school. No one came. She called her Dad. No answer. She called her Mom. No answer. She called her aunt Diane. Diane took Tanya to school and went to her dad’s apartment. There, she found Tanya’s parents had both been murdered.
Tanya went to live with Diane after school that day. There was a lot to deal with – a double funeral, moving Tanya, closing the parents’ apartment, working with the police regarding the homicide. Diane knew that Tanya needed counseling, but without a parent to consent to treatment and no insurance for Tanya, she was stuck. Tanya wanted to get back to basketball – the only thing that kept her going was the thought of summer basketball camp. But the camp couldn’t enroll Tanya without a physical, and Diane couldn’t find a doctor who would give Tanya a physical without consent.
Diane was at her wits end when the school told her to call Kids Matter. With help from Kids Matter, Diane soon had legal guardianship over Tanya, and Tanya had insurance. Tanya had her physical, and was able to go to camp. Tanya still gets counseling. No one has been arrested in connection with the murder of her parents.
