Iredell couny dss is a joke.. They destroy more families than they help. They come in your home and tell you what you can and cannot do or say and trust me they pretend to be your friend all the while schemeing to take your kids away. Not everyone is perfect or has lots of money to fight for their children and they get mixed up in the system because of dss.

I was there today for recertification on food stamps and was treated worse than any animal could have been. My home burned on April 27 and I have been calling and requesting a return call from my case worker to find out if DSS could help me. I am disabled, homeless, and broke!! The supervisor that I called on Monday and have yet to receive a return call from jumped into the conversation when I requested to see my caseworker, which by the way had been changed without notification. Long story short Iredell County DSS is a BIG JOKE!! She laughed at me when I stated my home had burned and said they would not help me and consistently called me a liar. Well here it is, I believe in documenting things and all of what I have said and done had been documented or witnessed. Eventhough she had me escorted out by security because I was upset, her attitude leaves a lot to be desired especially when I asked for my paperwork and she shoved it in my face and shook it. Oh yeah when I asked for her name, the guards refused to give it to me - I said ok, I will call Raliegh and report this. One of the guards replied "I don't care if you call F.... Obama, but you are leaving." I was treated like a criminal because I questioned why they were NOT doing their jobs - all of them at DSS!!

I have mixed feelings! Someone called them on my daughter and when the worker showed up at the house unexpected my daughter just so happen to have a party the night before so there were several people sleeping there and the house did smell like pot however my grandson was not in the home cause he had stayed the night at his other grandparents house. Well with those findings they removed my grandson from her home to mine that same day. They had on record several 911 calls made to her home so all that was against her. They did not take into consideration that he was not there when she had the party or when those calls were made, nor did they take into consideration that my daughter is 23 yrs old OWNs her home, has had the same job since she was 16, high school graduate. This happen in Jan and it is now July and I still have my grandson even though she has jumped through every hoop they have asked her to do, test negative for all drug test so why is it that they do not make a quicker attempt to put him back into her home. I feel like once they get involved then they take there sweet time to reunite the child with the parent. I completely understand if the parent is not making changes but when they are this case should be closed.

This is how it is; Imagine there's a state agency that pays & oversees, for example, road building. Say they gave all workers at county 'road bureaus' specific policies for handing out road building contracts, to help ensure fairness & competition & all that. You discover workers at the Iredell County Road Bureau are completely skipping over this process and walking contracts (paid for out of your paychecks) over to whichever company they want. What in the world would make them do that?
