Lindsey Shine is the parent of three children. Lindsey’s childhood was extremely neglectful. In her teenage years and continuing into adulthood, Lindsey struggled with homelessness and addiction. This eventually resulted in the removal of Lindsey’s children from her care. While Lindsey’s experience with the child welfare system got off to a bad start, Lindsey was able to find support through Family Treatment Court and substance abuse treatment services. In 2017, Lindsey’s children were returned to her care. Now Lindsey uses the tools she learned from this experience to help other families navigate the child welfare system.
