I can never get help here. I have to constantly call and they don't return your phone calls....the operator is never available, what the hell kind of place is this? They get paid to help people and it seems like we don't get the help unless we bug them and then they get mad! They all need firing! Please investigate this place.

Im very unhappy with Iredell county Social Services. I was wrongfully accused of food stamp fraud. The agency that prepared my taxes put i owned my own business. Where is it written that im guilty before im proven innocent. How many have been wrongfully accused. Stand up for something or fall for anything. Judge not

I have been and am licensed to adopt. Originally through Iredell Cnty. They do not follow any type of guidleines. The adoption supervisor is extremely unprofessional--though she was able to adopt through the system herself. Changed who I was licensed with. DSS in Iredell needs to be cleaned up. The State of NC needs to create one department and all of the same rules are applied equally.

Someone plsss help me long story short ... me and my husband are being investigated due to a simpleo ene time fight back in januaruy this year we have done well and a neighbor SERIOUSLY misheard what we were arguing about and called dss making it out we were fighting over our child which wasnt even there and was safe with his grandmother at the time of the argument. The woman who came out stated that i be drug tested randomly for a while due to my size (i have always been very small built/ "to skinny" )sweetdreams in her words ok so fine we have taken and passed alll the drug tests....also they asked we get marital counsleing and they would help provide and set up the appointment and never did anything or so much as call to let us know why they didnt set anything up like they said. So a few months go by and they closed the case . Me and my husband went ro have a drink at my husbands fathwr and stepmothers house where a argument broke out among others there the baby was NOT around this and the stepgrandmother who cant drink at all due to health issues had agreed since me and my husband were drinking that she would babysit as long as needed so the child was safe away and we had absolutly nothing to do with thw fight that broke out amoung the others there however in the police report it states that we didnt have appropriate child care and the child was in danger dss came abd took him without a paper anything no questions just took him and said we failed to provide childcade I KNOW HE WAS SAFE HE WASNT EVEN THERE how can they do this no paperwork nothing signed no police statement was presented they didnt even give us a moment to speak without immediatly interrupting and stating they didnt want to hear what we had to say... this isnt right i wanted to kno isnt there supposed to be some kinda legal document stating we r "unfit" and who states that and how i know it sounds funny but this truely is a case of a false police report and we can prove it! What do i do where do i start to get my cbild back

I would love to communicate with grandparents who have not been able to get their grandchildren from IREDELL COUNTY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES. My husband and I are long time married and professionals with no history of crime, drugs or any other dysfunction yet the CPS of Iredell County have denied us having our grandchildren while our son fights to win them back. It just does not make any sense. They keep threatening to adopt out our grandchildren. Why? Is there anyone who is having a similiar problem that will communicate with me? If so please respond to sofatoad@live.com. Has anyone tried legal efforts outside of the county?
WE are going through the exact same thing of trying to rescue our granddaughter from the evil clutches of DSS. We wondered if they treated others in this manner or if we had been singled out. The methodology is the same, what is the motivation for them? We have sought legal counsel in other parts of NC and they are appalled with actions of Iredell Co. DSS. Talk with Wake family law center to find qualified counsel.

The Iredell County DSS would rather spend thousands of the tax payer's money toward foster homes than GIVE US Our grandbabies. I recongnize that beautiful babies are hard to find, but those babies BELONG to us. They are our FAMIly.
I agree 100% I am a grandmother in South Carolina and I have been trying for 10 months to get my grand daughter out of the custody of the foster parents, but they would rather her be adopted by them rather give her to me where she belongs !!!

YES !! The whole system in corrupt !! They steal grand children from young parents and then will give the children to rich foster parents to adopt them. I have been fighting for my granddaughter for 10 months. I have no record on me neither does my husband. We were recommended for placement by South Carolina DSS dept. but North Carolina is refusing to give back my grand child.

straight. no chaser...iredell county dss is worthless...it is crystal clear that they do not give a damn about the welfare of youth or disabled yet collect a paycheck for basically being useless. EVERYBODY MUST START TO STAND TOGETHER AND FIGHT UNTIL WE ARE NUMB TO GET THESES WORTHLESS BITCHES OUT AND AN ENTIRELY NEW STAFF IN BEFORE ANOTHER CHILD IS FAILED. WHAT IS THE POINT IN REPORTING WHEN THESES WORTHLESS BITCHES DO NOTHING...OUR CHILDREN ARE IN JEOPARDY WITH THESE TYPE OF WORTHLESS BITCHES IN POSITION.THE SO CALLED HEAD HONCHO THERE IS YVETTE SMITH...LETS CALL/WRITE/EMAIL/TEXT HER EVERY DAY, HELL EVERY HOUR UNTIL OUR CONCERNS ARE HANDLED PROMPTLY AND PROPERLY AND THEN GO TO HER BOSS AS WELL

I have had a horrible time trying to get help with food. I applied Dec 30 2013. today Jan 30. 2014 I received a letter that was a eligibility denial or pending status letter. The worker Mrs Beauchamp told me NOTHING, it doesn't say if I am eligible or if I'm denied. I think they are sitting in their office complaining about to large a work load.!st LET me do their job, id' love to be overloaded EVEN for minimum wage!!!! I'd love not feeling discriminated against when I go to the dss office, I've called every day for a week now, the week before I went there twice. NOT one worker could see me, but I was told all my paperwork was in. Not one person could help me to find out if I were eligible or denied. I had to be eligible, I've not applied for any help for 5 or 6 years. We have no income for 2 months and I'm getting ready to loose everything I've worked long hard underpaid hours for.
Maybe once im in the homeless shelter my son can have a real meal. I idid have 2 interviews this week but don't tell dss, they'll make them fill out more forms and deny me for another couple months.
