TERRE HAUTE, IN - In our special report, a former Gibault employee came forward with allegations that he witnessed staff mistreat children.
We reached out to Gibault, among other agencies.
The following is a statement from Michele Madley, CEO of the children's services facility:
"Gibault cooperates with the Department of Child Services, State Licensing and Child Protective Services. Gibault turns over all allegations of abuse to Child Protective Services for external review. We are a transparent agency that provides our governing bodies with any documentation they request, including viewing of video footage in any area they wish to review.
We protect our children and staff by following policies and procedures set by our organization and the state. There is no story when an agency conducts itself accordingly. Due to staff confidentiality Gibault cannot discuss employment issues; however, all staff members employed with Gibault must be approved by the Department of Children Services."
