Extra Social Work notes ch.3 Juanita Chavez case study summary:  BSW graduate working in an urban neighborhood center (many Hispanic people  living in the area). Two young children are brought in by an older child who told  Chavez that she had found the kids on the sidewalk (Tomas and Tomacita), who  had been put down for a nap by their mother, and when they woke up she was  gone. A worker from child protective services recognized the children as siblings  to one of the teen girls receiving training. As it turns out, the mother had to report  to job training (for TANF) that day and her teen daughter was not available to  watch the kids, so she put them down for a nap hoping to be home before they  woke up (it is possible that a person on TANF can be removed from the program  is they miss job training). The mother was told that she should have put the kids  in the daycare system that TANF provides, but the mother said that there is a  waiting list to get into the daycare system. Chavez discovered that many families  in the area were in the same boat and many other teen girls were missing school  to care for siblings while their parent(s) were at work.  Later, Chavez knocks on the door of a house in the neighborhood (there is a van  outside with a girl inside peering out, the girl was sent home from school but  there is no one home). There is no answer at the door. Chavez comes back later  and tells the mother everything (who does not speak English). Turns out the girl  was mentally disabled and had the mentality of a one year old at 6 years of age  and had to be watched all the time. The school helped her with several types of  therapy, but recently the nurse had sent her home with head lice and they had  had trouble getting rid of them and the girl kept getting sent home. After  countless calls to the health department by several different social workers, the  health department finally gave in. The strain of lice was treated and the girl was  able to go back to school after she had missed so much education and therapy.
