Vulnerable teens lacked supervision in foster home without water or adequate food


No running water, little food and staff nowhere to be found. Those were the conditions a Winnipeg police officer stumbled upon while trying to return one teenager to a foster home entrusted with the care of four highly vulnerable girls, some who were sexually exploited and drug addicted.

Health authorities were called in, and the inspector recommended no one live at the Wildwood Park foster home licensed by Dakota Ojibway Child and Family Services (DOCFS) until the water was restored, according to a Department of Public Health spokesperson.
