NEW JERSEY DIVISION OF CHILD PROTECTION AND PERMANENCY VS. L.W. AND R.W. IN THE MATTER OF I.W. AND K.W. A-3001-12T3


NEW JERSEY DIVISION OF CHILD PROTECTION AND PERMANENCY VS. L.W. AND R.W. IN THE MATTER OF I.W. AND K.W.  A-3001-12T3
We reverse a finding of neglect after a mother came to the Division of Child Protection and Permanency office seeking housing for her two young children. We determine that the judge's finding of "unbelievably poor planning" was not sufficient for a finding of neglect. Parents of young children who become desperate for housing should be encouraged to seek a temporary safe placement for the children from the Division.  4/07/14
