New Facility for DFACS

The Chatham County Department of Family and Children Services has been helping families in the area for many years, but its old facility just wasn't keeping up with demand. Now it has a new home. This afternoon, dozens gathered for the ribbon cutting on Wheaton Street.

This state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the latest technology and a larger staff to better help those in need. "It really has increased the overall ability to process applications faster to get the assistance folks need and to get personal service, emergency services if they need them," said Charolette Rehmert, the department's director.

The Chatham County Department of Family and Children Services handles about 500 clients every day.
