Samantha is a 30-year-old Hispanic female who has just lost custody of her two children (ages 3 and 5). Child Protective Services (CPS) became involved after a neighbor reported concerns of neglect and substance use by Samantha. Samantha confirmed regular use of methamphetamine, though she reported wanting to get help for her children. CPS also found that there was limited food in the home and other safety concerns. The neighbors also reported the children were often outside for extended periods of time without supervision. The children have temporarily been placed in a foster home.
