Sexual assault and abuse often goes unreported with foster kids. This is especially true of group home children, who may believe that great harm will take place if they speak up about the Pennsylvania group home sexual assault. Sexual abuse is very common for foster children in the Pennsylvania group home organizations. The Children’s Bureau of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issues an annual report to review and analyze data regarding reports of child abuse, maltreatment and sexual assault to each state’s child protective services agency. This is called the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Children and Youth Service. “The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania uses the name Office of Children, Youth and Families. However, depending on which of the 67 counties you live in your county department may have a different name. Some of the counties use names such as: Children and Youth Services (CYS), Children, Youth and Family (CYF), Department of Children, Youth and Family (DCYF)and Department of Children Youth and Family Services (DYFS).”
