Needs of troubled girls get new attention

I thought this was interesting... its worth a read
Needs of troubled girls get new attention: Beth Collett, 21, of Tempe, spent her teen years moving from one shelter to another after she told state officials she was sexually abused at home. She lived in at least a dozen from ages 16 to 18, and each time she landed in a new facility there were new counselors and new rules. She never fit in. "I wish they would have had a group home that was specifically geared toward girls who were abused," Collett said. "I wanted something where people understood why I was there."
