WI have recentlT had the unfortunate opportunity to deal with this system. I have observed the lack of integrity of the people who work within this agency. Would anyone believe in my attemps to contact them on two occasions Iwas forwarded to an answering service. I have personally caught a cpscaseworker lying, not once but twice called her supv. 4 times spoken to her twice. I am from El Paso, TX. This agency is a travesty people such as Any M. should not even work with inmates in a prison, I have to go boy I will be back.

Today the casework Amy M. has admitted to several people MP's in fact that she was calling the wrong number. Yet she continues to have authority over the case, according to her she was only a intake worker,why is she still. Involved? Who is running this circus. It needs to be shut down.

Chellie Saffaels (sp) was the initial investigator on my case here in the springs. From the outset, she had made her mind up that I was this horrible person and that she was going to make my life hell... And did... This story starts in October 2011. I have 2 girls @ the time their ages were 19 and 17 and 2 boys 15 and 14. My 15 yo son was and still is verbally and physically abusive to me. My 19 yo daughter sticks up for him and no matter how badly he abuses me she protects him. my ex husband is in prison for asaulting my 19 yo when she was 14 and almost killing me causing me. Brain injury resulting in seizures. in 2011 my 17 yo came to live with us cuz her dad threw her out. During the first month she.was there she.witnessed my oldest son physically assault me resulting in my.getting a broken wrist Nd me being thrown down stairs. I didn't retaliate. Then on Dec 18 he slammed my face against the doorframe and was trying to subdue.me and was ramming my mouth with his elbow trying to knock out my teeth. He screamed when I bit him to get him off me. Someone called CPS and an investigation started. I was reprimanded for defending myself. My son received no punishment.

CONT As a matter of fact the investigator was determined to punish me for self defense. In January 2012 there was another altercation involving my mom and my 17 yo. She had lied to my mom ( her grandmother ) and her.mouth was slapped. My daugh got mad and she called the cops on my mom for assault. During that call she changed her mind and decided to tell them I wad suicidal. I was placed on a 72 hr hold. There was no truth to this and still to this day I can't understand why I was picked on. While I was in the hospital my mom was told I wasn't allowed to come home because I was addicted to drugs and I was an unsafe parent. They forced me out of my home leaving my kids with my aged 70 yo sickly parents. I had no where to go and no money cuz I had paid my rent and bills... My only option was a homeless shelter which wouodnt accomodate me due to my seizures and meds I take for them. They expected me to turn over all my money and live in a homeless shelter cuz my parents couldn't afford the rent and living expenses without me. When Chellie Saffaels interviewed my kids she promised them they would get my money and nothing would change if they told her whAt she wanted to hear. She convincdx them to lie and state I was a drug addict and had stolen meds from my father and pay them for them.( reality was that my daughter later admitted her and her brother stole my dads pain meds from the safe and sold them). but I got blamed. In Feb my mom sent Chellie Saffaels an email that she wW allowing me to move back home... chellie then went to her superiors and lied to them and had.me barred via court order that I couldn't be in the house and I had to have supervised visits. TRUTH IS : I NEVER ABUSED MY SON... I PROTECTED MYSELF... I AM NOT NOW.NOR HAVE I EVER BEEN ADDICTED TO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL... TRUTH IS I HAVE MEDICAL PROBLEMS I TAKE MEDS FOR. I HAVE EPILEPSY... PEPTIC ULCER DISEASE... HYPERTENTION... PTSD... ANXIETY... AND HERNIATED DISC IN MY NECK AND BACK THAT ARE WELL DOCUMENTED. I take medication prescribed for me. As prescribed. Sadly during the height of this mess I was broker my hand and ruptured another disc in my back requiring hospitLization. I was terrified to take pain meds for fear I would be labled again... I finally couldn't take the pain and relented but had the doctor write. Note stAting there was no other way for me to get relief... For. Year I was scrutinized and my everymove was watched and analyzed... Aspenpoint was sharing my clinic notes with DHS then chellie saffaels never failed to ad lib what was really being said. I caught her at that more than once... Long story short she.had it out for me and lied to make sure.I didn't see my kids except with someone watching... I tested negative for drugs everytime tested... The assessment was clean... Now a year later I M finally being exonerated for those false accusations that Chellie Saffaels led my kids to make. And during this time I was also accused of faking my epilepsy and other medical conditions... That was a lie to. I do not know why she tried to turn my kids against me... But while my.kid was "BEING PROTECTED" she wound up getting access to alcohol and drugs Nd in the hospital numerous times for alcohol poisoning and is pregnant... Great job DHS... SHE.WASN'T IN MY CUSTODY WHEN SHE WAS PASSING OUT DRUNK ON FT CARSON AT 17 YO AND GETTING PREGNANT... I M now going to file charges against her or file whY complaints I can.

File your complaints! But, go "higher" to make sure they do not get any credit for what they have did to you. Take a stand and demand more than someone saying they are sorry for what has happened or taken place.
After, you have made your goals. Move out of this state!
I went through "hell" while living in CO. Same area you are speaking about. My so called EX was the "devil"! Yet, the so called officials did not do crap! That is why there will never be trust in any officials ever again! That goes for any state too!
I was someone in the area others did look up to. For all the things I did for others. But, when someone needed help like I did. Please, a total stranger would be better than those wearing a uniform. Seriously, the proof was there but, they avoided the facts that hit them in their faces.
To be honest if you are crapped on. Crap right back but with a bigger load! Make sure names and all other information is tacked on. So they will either run or explain what they have done. Or be no soul with courage.
Be careful, stay strong in what ever you do! Don't let others get in your way to prove what ever it may be! Be blunt, stay firm, be heard!
Best of luck to you!

Despite the fact that the police, social workers and over 8 psycholgists have no doubt that my children were telling the truth and that this is one of the worst abuse cases they have ever heard,( one police officer was crying when he interviewed me), this judge would not grant us a restraining order!
My children were sexually abused, beatten, our dog was killed infront of us, I had a tooth punched out, i was raped analy after a surgery as I was so drugged up! This lasted 9 years! Yet I can not get any help from the courts!
This person sounds like a complete "nut" case! Sounds like my EX!
He is a "shameful" person of pure evil! Wish we could mention names on here, so others could be warned! Of course he has already ran from this state. He abused and got away with it! System is weak! Does any one care to make a stand for womens rights?

YES; There are power hungry CPS judges and investigators that abuse the system but notice how no one admits how many SEVERELY ABUSED children have been removed from their homes? Kids burned by cigarettes have been rescued due to this "unfair" bunch of crooks? How many parents are abusive to their kids and say, "my kids were removed FOR NO REASON?" No; I am not working there, I am retired. But this 'FOR NO REASON" BS gets really old. Many of these overworked, underpaid workers have saved lives.

I would like to know what happened? What did you ended up doing?
I agree with you, something needs to be done in order to have El Paso County DHS exposed, it is not only about the terrible things that they have done but also because people like us that really needed help were falsely accused and had our and our kids rights violated. I want to believe that if we could do something kids could really be helped in the future.

Child Protective Services located in El Paso County, Colorado Springs, Colorado, often will take children out of the home without good cause. Once CPS gets involved in a family's life, it takes two years before the heartache ends. It usually begins with some gossip to CPS and often children are taken from the home by police and put into a foster home for months at a time. If the parents do not have adequate income for a decent attorney, children can be adopted out or become wards of the state within one year. Facts and real evidence are not needed in El Paso County family court. CPS requires parents to go to counseling and the counselors divulge personal details straight to the social workers regarding personal, emotional, or family problems. Many of the judges, police, social workers, and attorneys are corrupt in El Paso County. If parents rely on court appointed attorneys, this is a sad mistake, since these types of attorneys often do not take their jobs seriously. Judges in family court often take away parental rights for no cause and end up wrecking the lives of families who were once good families. Social workers often have dysfunctional childhoods which makes them behave like tyrants toward parents. If you are in a bad marriage, have alcohol problems, or emotional problems, get help. We all need help from time to time. No person or family is perfect. Get help without the aid of county employees. They cannot be trusted. There have been many cases of social workers being harmed or injured, and usually this is due to abusive and violent tactics of CPS. I have heard about several CPS workers from Colorado Springs who were audited or arrested for tax fraud after being investigaed for failing to pay income taxes. Social workers are not honest, God fearing citizens, and by no means should you bring your personal or family problems out in public, unless you want to ruin the lives of yourself, your spouse, and your children. Stay far away from the CPS agency. They are hell on wheels and God will handle these types of vicious people as justice will be served.
Should I do a ua based on an anonymous call to clear my name at cps request? If not, what do I do?

If CPS demands a drug test based on an anonymous call and no criminal charges have been filed, do I comply? If not, what do I do?
