After finding a 16-year-old boy abandoned outside an apartment complex, DFS took him into care on July 31, 2021. The teenager has not been enrolled in school in over a year. He was previously removed from his mother’s care and placed with the man listed as his father on his birth certificate. He does not believe the person is his father and the man returned him to his mother within months of the teenager being placed with him. His mother is reportedly homeless and has outstanding warrants for felony charges. She also has no known source of income and is a chronic drug user. She cannot be found at this time. This 16-year-old boy is in need of an attorney to represent his legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place so he can find stability and support.
