Would you send your kid to a sitter dirty ?

Hi all just looking for some advice, I'm worried I'm being too harsh I babysit a couple of my friends children in my home from time to time and I love it I'm a 25 yr old stay at home mom so I like the interaction for my kids and the little bit of money helps. Here's the issue another mother asked if I could watch her kids a couple days a week and since I only have kids occasionally I thought it would be fine. The kids showed up on a super hot sunny morning in jeans and sweaters, dirty faces dirty hair and I mean dirty. They had rotten teeth, the boy was 3 not wearing under pants when I asked he said his mom didn't put any on him the jeans were crusted with poo inside, the 7 yr old was only slightly better. They smelled awful it was heart breaking the little guy had an accident so I took the opportunity to wash the clothes and him the tan lines washed off in the water. I feel so so bad for these kids the 7 yr old can't count past 10, they have fowl mouths, it's awful so the question is what do I do ? My first responsibility is to provide a safe environment for my kids so I don't see how I can have these kids in my home but I also have no idea what to do
