NH Connect the Fraud or Missing Funds

Did you know that the Department of Health and Human Services received an estimated $ 43.6 million in direct relief to be used for New Hampshire Homeowners?

CONCORD, N.H. - they of course may redact this article due to this attachment Copyright 2013 by All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.  However, as long as I quote them and give them credit where it is due is all that's required how else does information  get out? Here's my take on what the article doesn't tell you.

The link attached should bring you to the full article highlighting an unnamed survey that disclosed that the number of homeless children and families in New Hampshire jumped 6 percent over last year alone. It is likely much higher.

Unnamed State officials said the situation is a growing trend.

Numbers like 3,300 students in New Hampshire are homeless ... defined as individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate night time residence. Further defined... 
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students.

Quoted numbers in school districts as homeless: 

Hampton School District about 48 students 
Winnacunnet High School, 23 students 
How many families is that? 

The article stated "Many students don't admit they lost their home out embarrassment or fear that the state might separate the family."  Assuredly the parents are feeling the same.  And the Fear t is a very real factor and another avenue for the State of New Hampshire to take in money through the Department of Health and Human Service division for children, youth and families all of whom are not identifying how and/or where the money is being spent. 

Where is the money going? Why isn't it being used by DHHS to prevent these families from being homeless and losing their homes? And like the IRS which state employees in New Hampshire are enjoying the benefits, the millions coming into the state and not benefiting the people who need it  most? 

Do I hear the echo of We Want An Audit and We Want the IRS Scandal of 2013, you can be sure when it finally comes around it will have started at the top ... a director or more at DCYF, someones in the Court System, how many governors, commissioners, and others will be identified?

"The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. 
In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity."

 Frank Serpico 

That famous police corruption scandal in New York in 1971; made 

even more famous by Al Pacino in the movie "Serpico".  

The truth 

is the Utopia this country is suppose to be striving to achieve.
