347. Five Oaks Achievement Center

In 2010 a 17 year old teenager died during a hike while being forced to live at the facility. Because there were so many incidents at that time involving foster kids in Texas nothing was done in relationship with the death.

In 2015 it was reported that the local sheriff was very worried due to the high number of runaways from the facility. It is safe to state that something is wrong there when no less than 16 times the sheriff can to respond to cases involving 23 runaways.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
