Thanks to our "Pie Your Boss" fundraiser, now we can shower our counties with treats!

Starting this month, we will draw a county office's number from our bowl of fun to select which county to surprise!

The Fun Committee will reach out to the selected county's County Director to set up their treat.

APS Refresher Virtual Training
This year has created an environment to think innovatively and outside of the box. Typically, our APS refresher training would be in person. APS professionals would get together collectively and share best practices. They would receive updates about Adult Protective Services from
the state and national levels.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the APS program has had to adapt to the new normal quickly.
APS workers were provided with PPE and continue to investigate reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
Congratulations Shaker McKay!
10 Years of Service
Shaker McKay had been praying for an opportunity, and one arose in 2010: she began work as a clerk at the Mississippi Department of Human Services. Shaker transitioned from Clerk-Typist Senior to Eligibility Worker I, Eligibility Worker II, and now to a Case Manager.

As a U.S. Army Veteran, Shaker understands what it means to render selfless service, and working at DHS has helped her maximize that ability.
The Faces Are the Same,
but the Titles Have Changed!
