719. Spohn Avenue House for Girls

Orion Family Services runs a number of group homes in Wisconsin. One of them – Spohn Avenue House for Girls – was located in Madison.

The authorities closed the group home down after the employees first failed to monitor a girl who was as risk of committing suicide after her family was denied visit, secondary they failed to intervene in the right way once they discovered that the girl was in the process of hanging herself. The group home had not trained the employees correctly according to regulation and the state had not visited the group home as often as they should do.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
