Wendell Turner had to make a lot of noise at Youthville to protect his grandchildren from Pendland

Rick Pendland who worked for Youthville was also a sponsored foster parent, former school teacher and he worked at the Wichita Children's Home. Pendland, who now sits in the Cowley County Jail for allegedly raping multiple children, wanted to be the foster placement for Wendell Turner's grandchildren.

Wendell Turner had to make a lot of noise with Youthville to keep his grandson's from being placed in Rick Pendland's home.
Wendell Turner spoke Jan. 3, 2012 before the South Central Legislative Delegation:

Pendland hasn't been the only individual that has raped children under Youthville's watch. This is what Youthville calls "Giving children back their childhood":

Year 2011, Who's watching the children in Youthville's facilities? Man was charged with having sexual relations with one of the children.
Marshall allegedly had sex with a 17-year-old Youthville client several times between Oct. 16, 2009, and Jan. 14, 2010, Ford County Sheriff's investigator George Brown told the Globe. Marshall was not an employee of Youthville, but he was working at the agency's Dodge City campus at the time.

It's very concerning that children are not being protected and they are being placed in the homes of pedophiles by Youthville, the Sedgwick County DA's office and the Juvenile Judges. Protective parents in Sedgwick County have not only lost custody of their children but had their parental rights terminated after reporting the sexual abuse of their children.

Year 2009, Reported by the Kansas WatchDog here are a couple stories of parents who lost custody of their children after reporting that their children were being abused.

Year 2004, Another Youthville employee charged with sex crimes. 
KS SRS contractor admits to underage sex
By Chris Strunk Newton Kansan
A former United Methodist Youthville employee has been charged in
Harvey County District Court with sex crimes against three former
residents of the Youthville campus in Newton.

Year 2000, Youthville, Foster dad charged with 2-year-old’s death By The Associated Press Associated Press  December 7, 2000 Social workers regularly visited the Johnson home and found no indication that anything was wrong, said Jane Alleva, an official with United Methodist Youthville, which sponsored the Johnsons as licensed foster parents.... The autopsy indicated that Niccol suffered significant internal bleeding and injury in her abdomen.

Kansas has a history of endangering children:

The recent legislative audit, dated July 2011,showed that a father who was convicted of child endangerment and sexual abuse was reintegrated with his children after being released from prison.

Year 2011, Sedgwick County, A state-funded residential program designed to teach young adults how to live safe, productive lives mixes 16-year old-girls in foster care with sex offenders in their 20s. 
Year 2010, Sedgwick County, The Wichita, KS nurse who had alleged sex with a minor was never prosectued.
By Megahn Snyder (WICHITA, Kan.),
A nurse at a treatment center for teens could face charges for having sex with a 17-year-old client.
Wichita police tell us someone saw the woman leave the Camelot Center in Riverside with the boy early Thursday morning. The witness called 911. Police later responded to the woman's southeast Wichita apartment where they found the teen and the woman. She was booked on one count of unlawful sexual relations for allegedly having sex with the teen who was locked up at the facility. She could also face battery charges for fighting the officers who arrested her.

Then there was the settlement case of Brandon Blackmon,
Year 2009, Brandon Blackmon receives settlement for $875 for being placed in a facility where he was repeatedly raped. St. Francis staff opposed SRS because Blackmon would be the youngest child in the compound and his personal safety wasn’t assured. The Rev. Thomas Campbell, former vice president at St. Francis, predicted Blackmon “would be 'fresh meat’ and the 'target of sexual predators,’” court records say.  

11/5/10 Does anyone ever wonder why Wichita is ranked as one of the top 5 cities in the US for human trafficking?
