North Carolina State DHHS Office of Civil Rights Opens Investigation into Wilson County DSS
Mother claims Child Protective Services violated her civil rights and have abducted her children. North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services received a complaint from the mother and has opened an investigation into Wilson County DSS.
She has stated "poverty or economic disadvantages should not be a reason for taking children or not allowing them to return home to their parents. Praying pleading the Blood of Jesus, should not allow them to terminate your visitation rights. Being molested as a child by those in the foster care system, should not make me too mentally and emotionally traumatized to care for my children. Denying me access to my own paper work for years and not allowing me to make appeals or grievances to all those in the Department of Social Services or not allowing me due process to make reports, only gave them the ability to act as God taking my kids. In about a years time they have moved to terminate my visitation rights, how can they move that fast? They will not give me any assistance even though they are suppose to do this with needy families, or those dealing with economic disadvantages."
Jim Grant and Yolanda Davis with The Human Justice Coalition, Telethia Barrett with The NC Justice Seekers and Timothy Hodges with the Johnston County NAACP, were all instrumental with helping Ms. Nikima Wilson get an open investigation into Wilson County DSS.
A press conference will be held at the Wilson County Court House in Wilson, NC at 4pm.
