Workfare and a lien?
Tuesday, July 6, 2010 - 1:42 pm

I have a gripe with the Department of Social Services. We like many other families have been forced to apply for help after the closing of P&C. I had to allow them to put a lien on my home for cash assistance. Plus, my husband has to do workfare to work off what cash we get. A whopping $350 a month. So when I decide to sell my home, DSS gets all the money they gave us back. Last I knew, when you did workfare you were working off what they gave you, plus they get money from the sale of my home. So, my husband is doing workfare even though they get their money back from the sale of our home. My husband isn’t just sitting around, he has more than 40 applications out there. I pray every day that my husband will get a job before we get any money from these greedy people.
