The North Carolina County Departments of Social Service have
many dedicated staff who work hard to provide services and a safety net to
vulnerable families and individuals in their communities. It is our hope that the alleged actions of
one staff member in one agency will not tarnish or jeopardize the work of
county staff throughout the state.
At this time NASW-NC is unable to obtain accurate
information concerning the exact agency job title or degree of the Union County
employee who is accused of child endangerment.
NASW-NC will continue to work to gain accurate information and will then
take appropriate action to strengthen the social work profession and restrict
any inappropriate use of the social work title in North Carolina.
Our hearts go out to the children who have been impacted.
