When Child Protective Services (CPS) enters the picture assisting hard shipped families, the child may get placed in a foster home thus starting the cycle of mobility-the child is often moved from one home to another, one school to another resulting in a lack of residential and academic continuity for the child, which in turn results in negative effects in behavior, emotions and academia.
