529. Northwest Children’s Home Inc
This facility located in Lewiston, Idaho has been allowed to remain open after an investigation showed that that the children housed in the facility had been exposed to risk of both physical and sexual assaults.
Closing the facility down and start over would be the ideal solution. However then there are the question of jobs. The facility is a large employer in the area.
So what counted in the mind of the authorties? Jobs or the safety of the children? Only the future will show if the authorities really have the safety of the children in mind.
It could not have been fun to be placed at this facility.
