I heard that my county CPS office lost FIVE workers recently due to budget cuts. Mine already has 50 cases. How is this happening?!? Makes me so very, very sad for the kids in care. I’ve met nothing but wonderul, caring CPS caseworkers. However, asking someone to take on that kind of caseload and do it well is simply asking too much. This has to stop.
Maybe there needs to be a national agency for volunteer CPS workers, like CASA. Just someone to do home visits, and take notes, would cut the worker’s caseload to a much more manageable level.
