How many more caseworkers will be brought into this shell game.?
It seems that Jackson County Georgia DFCS just can’t keep case workers. Through reliable sources I recently found out that Katie Bice who is a current case worker with Jackson County Ga DFCS and the current caseworker on the case involving Alice Samantha Thomason and her girls Autumn Destiny DeShawna Thomason, Carly and Sara Louvelle Texanna Wilfawn is leaving. She has only been in Jackson County since January of this year. It is very odd that she is leaving just as the review panel for Samantha’s case is coming up on May 19th.
The question I have is why is she leaving and why did she chose now? This will make the ninth case worker that has been assigned to Samantha’s case since she has been dealing with Jackson County. Nine caseworker and eight case plans. It is a shell game. Jackson County has no intention of giving her children back to her. They will stand to lose to much money. So will the foster care provider.
This is especially true since Samantha has finished her case plan with the exception of a job and a home. Unemployment in Jackson County is at 10.4% the odds of finding a job even part time is remote. The odds of finding a job that suites Jackson County DFCS is nil. This county will do everything in their power to keep Samantha from getting her children back. They will do everything in their power to keep the kids in foster care.
If they truely cared about reunification, they would help her with housing either Hud or Section 8 ,they would help her with a job, even if it is outside the county. They would help her with transportation to get back and forth with that job.
They can spend $16,962.00 plus to pay the foster car provider but they will not use that money to help Samantha and her kids.
Yes, it is amazing that she will have yet another caseworker in this abusive, corrupt and greedy shell game of keep the kids away from their mother. It is time to stop this madness. Time to stop the greed. Time to give Samantha back her children and help her and them become healed. Nine Case workers this has to be some kind of record.
