Paris Hilton in white house

Grassley posted a picture with the socialite, saying they discussed ‘how we can stop abuse of children in residential care facilities.’  The group Hilton works with, Unsilenced, said the federal legislation they were set to introduce this week wasn’t ready. Hilton has been on a quest to get the government to provide better oversight of what are called congregate care facilities, which range from foster care facilities to boarding schools advertised to wealthy families to manage troubled teens. During a trip to D.C. in October, Hilton chronicled her own abuse starting at age 16 while living in a congregate care facility, the Provo Canyon School in Utah.
