It's always the people who have been on welfare for 20 years, have 10 kids from 5 different dads, that run around a filthy house with no supervision that complain that "the children & youth is taking my kids away for no reason" trust me, those caseworkers don't want to take your kids away, it's a HUGE hassle and they don't want to be at your house any more than you want them there. Take care of your kids and there won't be a problem. It's not like children & youth is gonna snatch your kids away for no reason...

Luzerne County children and youth are a very corrupt organization. There are caseworkers that buy drugs on the streets. At this point in time I will not mention any of the names. They pretend like they are your friends and pretend like they are the POLICE...then they snatch up your kids. Dont forget to act upon allegations made about your caseworker in Luzerne County. They are partying a little too hard. F$$KLCCAY:}

i have to agree with children and youth being corrupt. my boyfriends ex lost her children due to neglect and drug use and instead of putting the children with their father they put the children with the mother's parents. he had called children and youth cause he wished for his children to live with him. now this man has stable income and a clean house and would do anything for them. but instead of them placeing the children with him. they put him through evaluations which he passed his home even passed but they r still refuseing him custody of his children. they even held a hearing that was put on continuance on the day it was continued from and now they put him on supervised visits. and his lawyer has proof it was continued and was signed and dated by a luzerne county judge. his children have emoitional problems and this makes it worse and two of the children have a history of trying to hurt themselves. he asked for the children to seek counciling but none of that has been done. and they haven't even updated him on any appointments or anything about their health or well being and it was all in court order they have too. luzerne county children and youth do whatever they want and it's not them it is hurting it is the children. and then they wounder why their is so much crime cause the children are an emotoinal reck when they become adults they turn to drugs cause they think they will numb the pain. they grow up thinking both parents hate them and abandoned them cause of children and youth.they rally need to be investigated themselves cause i know they will find a very big problem with that agency. and they also go off about parents who drink but yet their were at least five workers talking about getting drunk after work in front of children in the hallway of orphans court. and the caseworker he has was one of them and she is also divorced i see she hates men but that is no reason to punish all men for what went wrong in her marriage. children are just a pay check for them. and don't tell me that the aren't cause i heard this alot but i have seen alot with children and youth. for every case they get the more parents they sue for childsupport and my boyfriends children have showed up on visits with holes and stains in their clothes. his son had shown up with a hole in his shorts where u can see his under wear and it was over his butt. now tell me where that childsupport goes if it isn't on their clothing. wish i can drive the cars those workers drive. oh yeah they complain about homes being in deplorable condition what about the rooms they put those children in for visits. and all the children i see who come in filthy to a visit and bruise. they are not their for the children.

ive been dealing with luzerne county children and youth for abut 4 years now and i can tell you first hand that they destroyed my sons life, he was 10 when they took him from me, i had relapsed after having years of sobriety, and they never gave me a chance, they never said get yourself together or we are going to take your son from you (had they done that i would have stopped immediately, and it was the second day of my relapse when they did this, well when they took him, they put him in the custody of my older son who i believe was 20 years old at the time and his girlfriend, 2 of the most immature people they couldve found, the girlfriend was verbally and emotionally abusing my son when my older son wasnt around, my little boy finally told me this, well than he was put in foster home and from there to so called friend's of his fathers (his father died when he was 5) well these people have been so mean to my son, he was the housekeeper, the babysitter for another child (baby) in which i dont even know where that one came from, also this couple are in thier 70's and very old school, the man was physically abusing my son, nothing was done but he was told he cant put his hands on my son anymore, thye never once allowed him to have a freind over, never no sleepovers at other kids houses, it was school, library and home, that was the life he had, also he gets a death benefit checks and i dont know where they go to now but they are definatley not being used on him, i have supplied everyone of his needs and wants from day one, clothing, toys, game systems, tv, and the list goes on, well up until they allowed these people to adopt him without me even knowing, yes i heard it from my son right before this past Christmas when i took him his gifts, one of the very few times this couple has allowed me to see him, and it was only because i was providing his gifts, they never bought him anything for any holiday, he would look like a bujm when i would see him, i dont know what these people would do with all of the clothing and things i gave to my son. well now my son just turned 14, last year he pulled a prank at school, and i know it was a cry for help, well he was put on probation for it, he started running away from this couples house and one of the reasons for doing so he told me was because the man would watch him take showers "to make sure he was cleaning himself properly" he told this to me and the police office at the time because i had talked him into turning himself in, just recently he ran away from a shelter care place they had him in and he and i had a long talk, i had asked him if this man ever touched him sexually and he said no but mom someone did when i was 5, i immediately went to the scranton police dept, because at the time this happened he was in my custody, now i cant get any answers as to what is going on with the investigation because im not his legal guardian, it gets worse by the day, they put my son in a place called glen mills which i wasnt aware of, well while there 5 crip members attacked and beat him up in the bathroom, they finally took him out of there, now God only knows where hes at, and believe me there is so much more to this story, my sons probation officer and i had a long talk and he did tell me i had a great son, and he also believes three's injustice with the lccys, he said to me that was the fastest adoption i ever seen and we werent even aware of it, he has his suspensions of lccys as well, i really wish there was someone i could talk to, right now i have no idea where my son is, when he does run away the only way i know about it is because he calls me, he just wants to come home to family, they completely blocked every family member from his life before i lost my rights and now they cant get a piece of information on him either, so when the parent loses thier parental rights i guess the whole family does as well, he hasnt had contact with any of his siblings or other family members in years and last year his poppy died, yeah he didnt even have contact with him, he didnt even know for a year that his poppy died because i wanted the opportunity to be alone with him and tell him and talk about it, that never happened, finally he found out by accident, also hes getting into gang activity now, he has tattoos on his knuckles of a gang members motto and i found pics of him on a facebook site with drugs in the pics, im devastated, he is still innocent, i still hear my little boy on the phone when he calls me when he runs away, yes i hear that innocence is still there and i know he is only trying to survive the best way he knows how, if my son was brought home to family members i know there is still a chance to bring the real him back, but if this goes on much longer i might as well say goodbye because the streets are gonna win my son in the long run, please if anyone can direct me where to go or who to turn to i would appreciate it so very much. thank you, sharon

Everyone knows CNY in Wilkes Barre, at least, rounds up as many kids as they can, not for the kids sake, but because they are worth MONEY in their budgets.. They receive $125.00 per day per child they have KIDNAPPED and pay foster parents $24.00, Nice profit !!! Half the people that work there are scum and I would love to get a look at their lives and families . HA you know what they say about a carpenter having a leaky roof. These people make me sick that work there. Like every other part of GOVERNMENT, absolute power corrupts and these people have ABSOLUTE power, over that courthouse, they run that 3rd floor and they know it. I actually think the Judges are scared of them, because we all know the skeletons they have hidden in their closets and the BANK rolls they carry. Get smart people, half the cases they handle are jut to keep their sorry asses on he payroll. CNY in Wikes Barre needs to be investigated, and then maybe, just maybe, some of the kids they have KIDNAPPED may see their parents again. Half or better of the junkies we have on the street will tell you they are from FOSTER CARE. Nice way to RUIN lives CNY.

Luzerne County Children and Youth Services have destroyed my family when I was a teenager, and continues to try now that I have children of my own. They have done nothing but harm. They removed me and my brother at sixteen and seventeen years old stating my mother was too depressed and narcissistic to raise children. WE WERE PRACTICALLY RAISED! Recently in the past two years someone called nine times on me with complaints such as: I didn't have silverware and my children were eating with their hands, complaints I was doing heroine (I was drug tested numerous times, none of the accusations being founded, nothing in my system), I was abusing my prescription medications (I surely was not abusing my prescription medications, and that showed when my drug screenings came up negative for them, all random tests when they showed up), my boyfriend was abusing me in front of my children and the caller "feared" for my child, that my boyfriend was abusing my children. All of these were unfounded. My children never had marks on them. They are very outgoing and happy. They have good grades and play football, cheer leading, and dance. They have been questioned about abuse and nothing was said that even remotely made these accusations true. Today I got a call, another call AGAIN that me and my boyfriend fight in front of my children. I think its my child's father but children and youth protect the caller and not the FAMILIES being harassed. Go figure. Any advice is welcome. Sherra.OKane82@gmail.com
