Hell On Earth- Not a good place to send kids with problems. – I went to this school, and I was also in the LIVE-IN part of Mission Home Ministries as well. When I was 13 I had emoional issues, and I stole my mother's car and totaled it, which landed me on probation . I was supposed to serve 1 month of houe arrest, so an ankle monitor was put on me. I thought it would be a good idea to cut it off, twice. That landed me in Schaffner Youth Center ( juvenile prison ) . When I went to court I decided that it would be a good idea to curse the judge out, so he sentenced me to 9 months in placement. Mission Home Ministries was very very traumatizing. They are supervised by mostly African-American workers, and when I was there the other girls were alost all African-American as well. There were probably 30 Black girls, 7-8 latinos, and 4 Caucasian girls. I was TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT, AND THE STAFF LET IT GO ON, AND EVEN PUNISHED ME FOR RETALIATING WHILE REWARDING MY ATTACKERS. GIRLS THERE RANGED IN AGE FROM 12 - 18. I HAD JUST TURNED 13, AND HAD MY 14TH BIRTHDAY THERE. THE STAFF THERE WERE GHETTO STREET TRASH, SOME DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR G.E.D. , AND MOST OF THEM TREATED THE GIRLS AS FRIENDS INSTEAD OF ACTING LIKE PROPER ROLE MODELS. THE STAFF PARTICIPATED IN GOSSIPING ABOUT THE GIRLS THAT WERE PLACED IN THERE, THEY PARTICIPATED IN PRANKS PULLED ON THE CAUCASIAN GIRLS ( ALL 4 OF US WERE 14 AND YOUNGER, WHILE 3 QUARTERS OF THE ENTIRE GROUP WERE BETWEEN 15 AND 18 ) AND SOME OF THE STAFF WENT AS FAR AS HELPING SOME OF THE GIRLS HAZE OTHERS, AND EVEN JUMPING IN FIGHTS. SPEAKING OF FIGHTS, WHEN ONE BROKE OUT BETWEEN 2 GIRLS, STAFF REPEATEDLY HIT, PUNCHED, TWISTED ARMS, STOOD ON, AND CHOKED GIRLS, AND OFTEN TIMES THEY WOULD ONLY "DISCIPLINE" THE PARTICULAR GIRL/GIRLS THAT THEY DIDN'T LIKE, MEANWHILE , THE OTHER PARTY WAS LET OFF THE HOOK, AND EVEN LIED FOR WHEN IT CAME TIME TO WRITE UP AN INCIDENT REPORT AND TELL THE HIGHER UPS. FROM WHAT I HEARD OF THE BOYS PLACEMENT SIDE, IT WAS THE SAME OVER THERE. THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO SEND ANY CHILDREN/TEENS. KIDS ARE PLACED HERE 2 WAYS - EITHER A JUDGE ORDERS THEM TO SERVE TIME AND THEY ARE SNTHERE THROUGH JUVENILE PROBATION (LIKE ME , FORTUNATELY MY PROBATION OFFICER SAW WHAT WAS BEING DONE TO ME AND HE DECIDED TO RELEASE ME ABOUT A YEAR EARLY ( WHEN YOU GO THERE YOU ARE GIVEN A PACKET THAT EXPLAINS A "LEVEL SYSTEM " THEY HAVE. ITS STEPS TO BUILDING A HOUSE AND EVERYONE STARTS WITH "FOUNDATION". YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO LEAVE THE "PROGRAM" UNTIL YO HAVE COMPLETED YOUR HOUSE, HOWEVER , PROBATION OFFICERS, JUDGES, AND CHILDREN AND YOUTH HAVE THE POWER TO END THE STAY AT ANY TIME) , OR CHILDREN AND YOUTH SENDS THEM THERE BECAUSE THEY ARE A FOSTER CHILD WITH NOWHERE ELSE TO GO ( I FELT FOR THOSE GIRLS, AND EVERYTIME A GIRL LEFT THE PLACEMENT THESE GIRLS WOULD CRY THEIR EYES OUT, STATING "IT'S NOT FAIR, I'VE BEEN HERE FOR 4 YEARS AND I STILL HAVEN'T LEFT " ) . IF YOU CAN HELP IT, KEEP YOUR CHILD FROM THIS WRETCHED PLACE AT ALL COSTS. NOT TO MENTION THE STATE CHARGES YOU $650.00 A MONTH FOR CHILD SUPPORT FOR THIS PIECE OF SH*T! AND I'M TELLING YOU FROM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE THAT'S A HUGE RIP OFF! IF ANYTHING, THIS PLACEMENT MADE MY EMOTIONAL ISSUES SKYROCKET ! DID I MENTION I ATTMPTED SUICIDE THERE 5 TIMES! AND RAN AWAY TWICE WITH NO MONEY OR ANY PLACE TO GO, I HID IN A DUMPSTER JUST IN THE HOPE OF GETTING OUT OF THERE!
