Joint Council on International Childeren's Services members walk

Tom DiFilipo must be having a bad time.

JCICS and AMREX scandal

I know a lot of the clients who got caught up in the AMREX fallout-complained to the JCICS about their members who used AMREX.  A lot of those agencies-some of who are not mentioned above did not renew when questioned about their involvement with AMREX, their client contracts, and how they were handeling their clients who were affected by AMREX.
