DailyMail.com on Friday contacted Kendall asking for a comment on this case and was awaiting a response.
According to its website, Little Heroes is a co-ed intensive group home for boys and girls ages five to 11 who have social, emotional, behavioral or mental health problems.
It is operated by the Justice Resource Institute – a not-for-profit organization that provides outpatient specialty mental health services to disadvantaged communities.
Robinson enrolled her daughter in the program because she reportedly has severe emotional challenges, and the girl has been splitting her time between the group home in Dracut and her family home.
Robinson says when she saw her seven-year-old this week, she was shocked to find her long, curly hair gone.
She says no one called her to ask her permission to give Tru a haircut, and she got no notice after the fact.
‘I am very upset. And I’m not going to stop being upset because I feel like my child was assaulted and violated,’ she told the station NECN.
The program has released a statement to local news outlets explaining that ‘decisions regarding grooming are based on a variety of factors, including hygiene.’
Officials at Little Heroes declined to go into the specifics of this case, citing state and federal privacy laws, only saying that ‘a review of the circumstances is underway to determine what occurred and, if necessary, appropriate action will be taken.’
Robinson is planning to sue the program and wants her daughter moved out of the facility, reported WCVB.
