The Daily Oklahoman recently featured the work done by OKDHS’ Child Welfare workers as they work daily to protect vulnerable children and do what they can to achieve permanence in children’s lives. It is important that the general public understand the valuable services that all state employees perform to make Oklahoman a better place to live. Many times, the jobs done by state employees are jobs that no one else wants to do but need to be done to protect or improve the lives of our fellow Oklahomans. As we reach the mid-way point of 2013, let’s make sure that Oklahoma’s leaders remember how valuable state employees are. The story can be found here.
