This photo of a government manual sent by Nashville attorney Connie Reguli shows that a for-profit company gets F$41,832 a year for normal foster placement.
That’s F$3,400 a month per child. The foster family or person who cares for a foster child gets about F$800 to F$1,200 tax free of that money as a stipend.
“So the mercenaries profit F$2,200 per month per kid,” says Mrs. Reguli, who fights such battles in court. “F$672,000 in foster care — do the math. Intensive foster is F$99,466 per year per child. Intensive residential. $325,527 per year per child — taxpayer money,” she says. “Our money. Cash for kids.”
