Social services agencies often profile parents based on their young age and low income. Two North Carolina parents are suffering this manner of profiling in the midst of a family disaster. A car ran onto a sidewalk and struck their one-year-old daughter, whom the parents were pushing in a stroller. While the little girl has made a remarkable recovery in the hospital, her parents are having to battle with social services about whether or not she will be able to go home. The couple is poor and has been living in an extended stay motel. While they are not homeless, social workers are questioning the fitness of the parents based on the fact that they do not have a “permanent residence.”
