Has anyone dealt with CPS in Kanawha County? Who are the good/bad workers to deal with? Who is fair and who is not? Who returns calls (I know lots of them don't)...

Do not trust any of them, do not let them in your home & if you have a lawyer you need to sue the DHHR

Suing CPS? I'm just wondering what you guys are doing? I have had to contact them many, many times. It took us 4 yrs to get the son we have away from his crack head mother. And she had another one this past November and they won't do anything. Last report we got from mutual friends is that she was so high she was dropping cigarette ashes on the babies head while he slept in her arms. And well CPS won't do anything. My thoughts are if they took a 5 yr old away (judge did finally, not CPS) why not a newborn that really can't defend himself at all. She failed every drug screen while she was pregnant in the judges office for opiates, then also at her ob appointments and they still sent her home with him.He is not legally or biologically ours but I am concerned for his safety. And we have tried everything in our power to do something but are at our end.

I will explain this very plainly kanawha county CPS is worthless I have dealt with them numerous times and you have to put a fire under their asses to get them to do anything now clay CPS will take your kids if you screw up but kanawha county CPS is like a bunch of circus monkeys

But can't involve clay county when they live in Kanawha. I do understand your point though. I'm afraid something horrible is going to happen to the baby and at that point it will be their fault!

How do u lite a fire under the them? The Supervisors don't care either. No wonder our DHHR system is in a mess. I can't believe someone political hasn't taken made it a mission to clean that mess up.

Yes it's a shame for sure. Online are telephone hot lines to call if you suspect child or elder abuse. I've never used it so don't know how fast they respond.

I do know if you call the regular number at the county level, you usually just get voice mail if that. But I have called THE STATE LEVEL before, when I had questions or needed help amount information for friends - and even e-mailed the state office of medical services. THAT USUALLY LIGHTS A FIRE, because I've got returned phone calls in a courteous manner in that way.

Just type in WV State Offices - FIND MEDICAL - then click contact and there are e-mail addresses there, guess it works better since it's in writing. Likewise with SS - an e-mail gets a response, you can't hardly get an answer on phone from local office either.

Yes workers are underpaid and have too many clients to handle, so YES there is swinging doors there and all they do is TRAIN and that hurts the people who need answers/help; etc.

I've found some of the workers are usually exasperated and not really meaning to be hateful to the public, but we are all human and make mistakes I suppose, especially if tired!!!!. They are at least trying to work for a living, so try the e-mail thing - and don't name names unless it's really bad.

Yes I used to work for the State - not there, but it's like anyplace else with county, state, federal, city - the political BIG WIGS get all the money and do nothing to earn it and the little busy bee workers are paid next to nothing.

If you have a case worker from the "lazy" CPS office, then it seems to me you must have been an awful parent to even get them off their a$$.

if your worker was Timmica then you need to go make a complaint against her at DHHR, she has had quite a few complaints made already & the more the better.

Kanawha county dhhr and the law suck, my daughters three children was beat by their stepfather, cps took the kids n put them in foster care, let him run free, dropped all charges on him for abuse put them on my daughter, said she should have known bout abuse? They were on drugs later found out, then daughter went to rehab for six months, while in detox first week, cps worker pickens called highland told daughter she should just die, because they had took her rights away from her, she's till went to rehab, to fight for her kids and still fighting gofer them, but as of now the kids are bout to be up for adoption? I'm unable to take the babies due to health, I fought for my grandparents rights and get visits once a month! They split kids up due to a b..... Foster mom making false accusations with the 7 year old, now she's brain washing 6 old grand daughter, and bout to get rid of 3 three year old grand son? Having her address mom, as her first name? Making up lies to were the kids don't get their sibling visits. So I've had to start video taping visits to protect seven year old grandson. The three year old at visits acts drugged, told cps this and files internal investigation, guess what nothing done. What are we suppose to do when they think their shit don't stink?

Any state or federal ggovt entities have to posses a search warrant issued by a judge, to be able ro entrer your home unless invited. so if they ever show up. tell them that they are in direct violation of your 4th amendment right and to piss the fk off.
