The program for Jones County Family Connection’s July collaborative meeting was about recent changes for the Department of Family and Children Services, and there are many.

Jones County’s DFCS Director Tammy Threatt presented the program at the July 21 meeting and started by explaining administrative changes. She said, in the past, the department reported to the commissioner of the Department of Human Services, but that has changed.

She said Georgia DFCS has a new director, Bobby Cagle, and he would report directly to Gov. Nathan Deal.

“The reason given for that change is the governor wants a clearer picture of what is needed,” she said.

Threatt said the past eight years have been difficult for DFCS, as many state agencies. She said employees’ positions were not filled and no one had gotten raises.

“I feel like the governor is trying to be more responsive. We are hoping for better communication,” she said.
