What is the goal of Dcbs? I have heard so many stories,good and bad. How can dcbs,give three children back to a family and keep two? I heard this and i don't understand,if the family is fit for three why not the other two? what are the regulation for removing a child,and no i am not stupid,,i know for a fact,this woman lived in a trailor,no water,had one can of milk for the child and a jug of water,,and a man in the trailor very drunk,,i know abuse ,neglect,drug's,,but in these two situation's i was just curious,,i know they have guidelines,i guess i just hear lots of stories,and find myself wandering about guidelines,rules and regulation,,protocol for when they place a child back in a home or do they have a protocol to continue to monitor for so long,or is it just over?

why the hell is it any of your business? So what if the woman lived in a trailer..Is that a reason that she shouldn't get her kids back? and as far as having no water and one can of milk..you dont know her situation maybe they are poor and are just trying to get by..being poor is no reason to take someones kids..at least she had milk..damn! Have you wittinessed any actual child abuse? If not you need to mind your own damn business!..Thats the problem these days people are to worried about others lives..not everyone has the same things or lives the same way you do and that is no reason to go judging people..If your that curious why dont ya call em up and ask em instead of postin it on topix

DCBS is a office full of over worked under paid case workers that do not have time to do all the home visits and reports that are needed.

i cant understand why they even bother taking the children, they end up putting them right back in the same mess they came out of.they order the parents to take all kinds of classes and they dont learn anything. the parents just put in the time so they can get their kids back.

i do believe it was this place they investigated and some SSw workers got in trouble,maybe we need some investigation in our DCBS, and i know some children do need removed from home but not all there surely is some other preventive measures and would save the county money.

DCBS is a very conscientious place to work, those people do a wonderful job over there with their main goal of being family reunification, could any of you all do the job that those people do over there with the professionalism that they do it with? I think not. If I had a situation with my children, I would want those people and their professionalism in my life and my family's lives. think about what you say about people, and do not generalize or stereotype. BECAUSE those workers over there do not do that to their clients!! It's a very tough job, and they do the job WELL

ecuse me was Hardin, Ky. I dont know where you come from but where i come from,,DCBS,is not this way. The main goal of DCBS is family reunification, and to place children with family first. I see a lot of cases where this is not done at all. Family is not notified until they are already taken and placed in foster care. Then family members have to go to court over and over to fight to get these children. If you look in the DCBS manual which you can find online, you can find out a lot of things that are not done right. They also have a lot of programs to help familys, that not utilized or family,s dont even know about. The manual also tells you how much money the state puts out for children placed in foster care and if they get adopted the money is more. DCBS does not always follow the rules or use professionalism. I still think DCBS needs investigated, I apologize if i offended you , i am not judging anyone just voicing my opinion,as you did in your post. I do agree some workers are really good. However some workers never return a phone call at all,i dont think that is very professional at all,these calls are related to children. I could go on and on,but i wont. I also know some workers answer the phone sometimes,and have known the worker being asked for was answering the phone and istead of saying this is her or speaking,she put them thru to her voice mail. I dont think that is very professional at all,,I actually thought it was quite rude,but again thats my opinion

yes in some cases that is very true and yes it is a battle to get them back,should not be this way,,DCBS is for the children,all parents that have thier kids taken are not drug abusers.and before children are removed family should be looked at first for placement. If you have been involved in a case you have the right to ask for an open records request form,, form#DPP-010. dont never give up your fight, you can e-mail,your governor,state represenative ken upchurch,call the ombudsman.Hal rogers,,all the e-mail adresses can be found online. you can even call the news in lexington or call the lexington herald,keep up your fight,each and every person has a voice and needs to be heard. I read about that investigation in Hardin County related to DCBS,,and six sw got in trouble.
agree

I am addressing residents of lexington (fayette county) or anyone thinking of moving there,absolutely social workers take a case as a personal vendetta as i found out myself they grab your kids and even if you do work your case and not found guilty of anything but you do everything completly holding onto your children, placing them in preadoptive homes, not allowing any contact whatsoever, definately this is a money making position for social workers they see kids as a commodity if anybody needs investigated its lexington ky DCBS. they are given money for taking kids out of their home thats wrong they should be paid for reunifying.. the limits they go to persecute someone is rediculous. we depend on our judges to see through the social workers false statements and accusations and pray for the judge to see through them. They take normal happy familys and tear them apart sepperate them cause mental emotional distress to the kids and thats what this is about the kids. and if you make one mad they go all out for you. there needs to be an arbitration person for each county that is not for DCBS and can investigate each case, to stop them from tearing apart families that dont need to be torn apart and find families that do need help. If all counties would stand together of families that are NOT guilty of doing anything wrong, and go to change the laws maybe we could get something done as a group. deeply concerned about all the children that have been removed from their familys that didnt need to be, get in there and do everything you need to do for your kids and never give up, dont sit back and let DCBS take your children when you dont deserve it. place your kids picture where you can see it everyday and that will give you the courage to fight through anything.

When DCBS takes a child out of a home it normally goes to court. Then its the judges decision when and if the child is placed back in the parents custody. It's not always up to DCBS. they dont always make the right decision either. This is from my experience with DCBS. I was the child. And don't agree with how they work in some cases. I'd go into detail but theres not enough space.
