<p>Our neighbor ( who is moving) and trying to lessen the amount of things she has to move- offered some small dressers to a family on the next block- who is obviously quite poor. ( we know them also 3 young girls- the youngest is toddler the oldest in 6th grade- the grandmother who is diabetic and and amputee, the mother and the father of the youngest girl- who is also the uncle of the two older girls)</p>
<p>Anyway- after stopping by their house- my neighbor reported to me that the adults ( minus the grandmother, not sure if the mother was there- and adding a few others) were smoking crack. The girls weren't there- but I am very concerned about this new information about their situation.
Im not going to go confront them, now that they are too high to talk, but I am not sure what to do.</p>
<p>I don't feel that calling police or DSHS is an automatic solution, because I know of several cases where I think their intervention has made things quite a bit worse, and that isn't counting the cases in the papers where they have pulled kids from homes only to place them in abusive foster homes resulting in their deaths.</p>
<p>I suppose I should go double check this information for myself- since I am just going by my neighbors reports- she does tend to be excitable, but I don't think she would exagerate to that extent- I have no idea what crack smells like however- other than her report that it smells like fingernail polish remover?
Appreciate any suggestions</p>
