If you were to go to a Board of Supervisors meeting and listen to the Director of Social Services you would think they are all that is good. Unfortunately, they could not be any further from the truth.
Lila Honahni places kids in foster homes. She is known among several foster kids. Her reputation is that she threatens foster kids and places them outside the County of Del Norte.
One Foster Child at the age of 13 was placed in a home of Nigerians in Oakdale California which is approximately one hour from Modesto. She was left alone by the Foster parents with two teenage boys 16 and 18. She claims she was raped by the 16 year old boy who was also from Crescent City. She was afraid to tell the Foster parents. Additionally, when she alleges that when she discovered she had lice, Kerosene oil was dumped on her head instead of providing her with a treatment. She received burns. After that she began to harm herself and the system placed her in a psychiatric hospital for 2 weeks.
Britney Moore is another Social Worker who places kids in homes. Two Foster Kids were placed in the Foster home of a certain individual who allegedly made the kids sell Kratom.
Kratom is a tropical tree native to Southeast Asia. Consumption of its leaves produces both stimulant effects (in low doses) and sedative effects (in high doses), and can lead to psychotic symptoms, and psychological and physiological dependence.
If the Foster kids refused to sell or deliver the drugs the Foster Parent would call probation and create lies about them. The Foster parent is still fostering kids.
Allegations of other Foster parents would simply abuse small children. One 65 year old woman who fostered different aged children placed a toddler in what she called “baby Jail.” if the baby/toddler begins to cry, the Foster parent would take a spray bottle and spray the kid in the face with water.
Jessica Rotola is another Social Worker wonder. Ms. Rotola likes to threaten not only the kids on her caseload but people she doesn’t know through manipulation and contention tactics. Jessica Rotola recognizes that the system is “broken,” however she contributes to the broken system.
One thing for sure, Brian Claypool, Esquire. is a civil right attorney as well as a defense attorney. He has won a case in Del Norte County in the past. I really don’t believe Del Norte County Foster Care Program wants him to dig into what is happening here, because quite frankly it would put a million dollar hole in Department of Social Services.
There are numerous stories out there just like these. Same story different young face. It appears the Del Norte Foster Care Program is ruining lives. Taking children from one abusive household and placing them in another abusive household. We wonder why our youth is not thriving? Don’t have to look to far to see the outcomes of destroyed lives.
