Case 9:

A child, age 15 months, and her mother, age 16 years, were living with mother’s aunt. Following a domestic dispute, mother was admitted to a youth shelter. The situation in the aunt’s home is very volatile and poses a risk to mother, who sustained injuries in the domestic dispute. Mother is unable to return to that home and her child shouldn’t remain in that home without mother. Mother and child were, thus, placed together into care.
