Not a coincidence these government agencies are making access harder for people who need it. The old Dekalb Workforce center location was next to the train station in downtown Decatur moved. Water company for payments was downtown across from train station moved. Even the power company downtown moved. Old location Of DFCS: outside train station. New location = harder access to people who use it & need it. All these places were together or near each other in a centralized location which even if you lacked a reliable automobile you could easily catch the train if you needed to go to more than one of them & they were located either next to or across from train stations

We calling numerous time this DCF. Just recording comes on. And that "they will get back" in 24-48 hours. That also not happening.. It's time for authority to look into this matter. NOT ACCEPTIBLE! Do they care about the kids? Like they saying? More likely they sleeping on job. No responsibility whats so ever! Shame on them.

Terrible! DeKalb does not follow the safety plan that the write out. I need to speak to supervisor. I was believe the case manager is not doing what best for my kids.
