DHS: Department of Human Suffering in Michigan (Some Say)
Michigan DHS Reviews and Complaints by Consumers and Customers
From the site:
Complaints List was founded in 2011 by a group of individuals seeking to channel the power of the Internet into a useful, accessible consumer protection resource. With the economy struggling, it seemed there were more and more companies seeking to take advantage of consumers through false advertising, bait and switch, and generally poor or questionable business practices.
Wow, talk about poor business practices.
The reason I put this up is because I know someone who was expecting a call from their caseworker for an appointment. This was set up by DHS but they didn’t call the person for the appointment. And their benefits were cancelled.
It’s funny how the media tries to portray all the people on assistance as trying to “game the system”. Can’t exactly do that if you can’t even contact your case worker.
There really are people in need. The only reason you don’t see it is because it’s hidden by the fact that people get ebt (electronic benefits transfer) cards. If you saw the same people in a line I’m sure you would be shocked at the number of people.
If you, or someone you know is having problems with their DHS office, or caseworker, they may possibly find some information on this site that will help them. For their sake I certainly hope so.
Tip: It would probably be smart to “fax” any information to your case worker. Someone noted in one of the emails that DHS had gone paperless. Of course, I don’t know if that information is correct.
I know that there are faxes that will give you a confirmation that it was received. I used such a fax at Kroger, of all places. Not only did it confirm that it was received but it printed a copy of what was sent on the confirmation.
