Yukeyia Corbett started this petition to New Hanover county department of health and human services

The reason for this petition is to try and get reform in the New Hanover County department of social services. I have heard countless stories where they’ve demonstrated unprofessionalism by creating  biased opinions based off personal feelings, failing to have/ keep the child(ren)’s best interest at heart and taking custody of children without the child being in danger. 

 

This petition is not to gain negative attention but to gain awarness within our community about the malpratices within the department.

I have my own personal reasons for this petition as well, so i would like all of my fellow citizens to be aware of them. On May 22,2019 my two childeren were taken into custody based off false allegations and since in custody they have been emotionally, verbally and physically abused by their Foster parents. I have expressed my concerns to my social worker and her supervisor and they reply by saying “they aren’t allowed to hit them /mistreat them “Or “I know her personally and she wouldn’t do that”. As if their hasn’t been Foster parents that commit those very crimes or worst ! . Ive filed a report based off what my children told me and the bruises on their bodies, and the case was closed within days of it being opened ! I attached photos and audio of my child explaining the abuse . They claimed to have found no abuse!! I’ve been dealing with DSS  For a year and half and no visitation has expanded despite me doing what they’ve asked of my boyfriend and I , I haven’t been able to attend any doctor’s visits even though my parental rights aren’t terminated, they won’t give me any updates on progresses with the programs they have my children in and aren’t very receptive about my boyfriends and I wishes . 

If I could have everyone’s support in gaining reform in the New Hanover County Department of Health and Human services because I think they’ve forgotten the purpose of their jobs and what to look for when a child needs to be removed from a harmful situation because soooo many families like mine don’t deserve to have their children taken . If you want to be a voice for ALL children Please sign this petition!
