Former Congressman Dave Nagle grew up in Toledo near the Iowa Juvenile Home and has volunteered there. He says recent reports about the home have been distorted and don't focus enough on the things that have been done right, such as educational progress of the residents. He says staff members go to work every day, despite sometimes being attacked, because they care about the kids.
