I think they try to get those food stamps out of their own pockets the way they act. They are rude, and will do anything to make you look like a liar, and keep you away from getting what you need. They sure have nice clothes, jewelry and cars though. AR. and Clay County and Piggott is all cheapskates involved in "trying to help needy people" in Clay County. A person would probably be lucky to get $10 worth of food stamps a month there, they want your life's history with all your receipts for proof, and that is not usually enough for one of their caseworkers. It may take 3 trips before you can get her enough proof, by that time you may be starved along with your family. Maybe the system will improve someday, AR. will be one of the last states to ever see this, I'm sure. Why can't they show more concern and compassion and help all people fairly, without harrassment?

If so, it's only fair that those receiving assistance do too. If you can afford to get high, you probably don't need such a service.
I have to in order to work for my check, you feel the cops and social workers should to earn their checks, therefore... in order to get assistance, those wanting/needing it should have to. JMO

I believe there are some very nice workers for the most part in the Piggott office. How do you manage to buy illegal drugs and get welfare benefits?#$?? You must be a very good story teller. Do you trade benefits for drugs? The taxpayers won't stand for this! You better run and hide for a long time! Maybe you should try working for a living.

I don't see why they would give any body a hard time for any reason. Maybe those that are doing this isn't from around here so there for they don't care about anybody from around here, but either way the more government assets we have coming into this county the richer this county will be. I agree that some of these ladies that work up front in these offices around Piggott need to quit judging on folks and soften up that heart a little. I don't like a lot of these idiots around here either, but dening benifits hurts children.

yeah these "idiots" might spend all their cash on drugs, but these government benifits may be the only thing their poor children have to eat on.

I think that you are incapable of reading comprehension? I was commenting on someone's post that the workers of dhs should be drug tested.

I don't agree that DHS workers in Piggott are purposefully denying benefits to people who qualify. It is state policy that you have to give proof of income, rent, address, etc. I think that the real problem here is that the dollar amount for what people can make and still receive assistance shoud be raised. I know that there are people who are living in poverty who do not receive assistance because they "make too much." We need to go to our legislators about this!

I agree. Missouri actually gives it to people who neede it and sometimes to people who don't. But the fact is the people who need help desperately get it there. Many calls to our state represenatives have been called about our Pigggott DHS. That is the only way you will get anything done. This is sad but true.

DHS is a facility here to help under priviledged and hard working people who have either lost their jobs due to down sizeing or thur no fault of their own.also the elderly who barley survive on their income,as well as familys with children to feed.Yes there are some who slip thru who are lazy,who want a hand out,always have and don't intend to help themselves,they have been receipients of welfare forever and thats all they know.you think it is bad now!wait!!it's fixing to get worse,people starving,freezing to death,doing without vital medications.now thats where neighbors look after each other,share what you have,give more expect less.I for one hate to see food go to waste,if I have extra I will gladly feed the elderly,the young.If everyone would go thru there pantry and sack up the food you never use,we could fill up a food pantry for the winter.Alot of people just throw it out,cause they won't use it,stop!someone will be glad to use it when they are hungry.We've got to get back to our forefathers way of living and giving.Put God first in your life and love your neighbor as you love yourself.Dhs workers are our neighbors and they have a job to do,they are limited to what the goverment provides.we are all human,lets build one anothr up--not put others down----God bless all!have a blessed day!Just my outlook on life.we can make it or break it.I aim to make it.I can do all things thru Christ who strength'ns me.
