#SpeakOutForTheTaken Who are the TAKEN? They are our children, our adult disabled children, and our elderly relatives who are in Guilford County DSS custody (nonsecured and secured), but should not be for whatever reason. They are sometimes the grown adults who were in foster care and aged out, or were in foster care and had bad experiences there, too. Are you willing to share the injustice done to your family with the Guilford County Commissioner's Board due to unconstitutional, ineffective, negligent, fraudulent, or unethical Guilford County DSS practices in regards to family services? They are statutory administrators of the Department of Social Services for the county and also ultimtely responsible for the finances that go in and out of the Dept. Each speaker of the floor must come dressed appropriately if coming to speak together with the PALs volunteers (other families of Guilford Co) and only has 3 minutes of speaking time available to each speaker. Come a little early to sign in. We have a 30 minute time limit for all speakers who sign up. When you sign in, you get a little number to clip to your shirt so speakers can go in order of who signed in.
