The family has been experiencing housing instability, they were staying at Shade Tree, were evicted due to an incident between two older siblings, wherein one of the children was transported to detention. There are concerns about the mother’s untreated mental health issues which include: Depression, PTSD, Anxiety and Borderline Personality Disorder. She is not currently taking her medication. The father neglected the subject minors by failing to provide proper care, custody, supervision, shelter or other care necessary for their well- being.
