Jane is the oldest of three siblings. Her mother and father fought often, so she tried to shield her siblings from the abuse and chaos in their home. Exhausted at school, she was written up for sleeping in class.
Jane’s mother senselessly beat Jane for getting in trouble in school and began to strangle her, causing her to almost die. When an ambulance was called, Jane was sent to Denver Health.
Child protective services and law enforcement investigated the case and DCAC provided counseling services to Jane and her non-offending family members. Today, Jane and her siblings are safe with their grandmother.
