  1. Ok…this should not be happening even for a “few hours”. APS time to pay attention here before this young man ends up dead or trafficked.

  2. If DHS is failing with watching the children that are in the foster care system and DHS is failing at watching the adults with special needs, and DHS is allowing elderly people to die from the inadequate care at assisted living homes. Makes one have to question, what does DHS do with our tax money that isn’t failing or inadequate and for the betterment of our society?
