Why are Transylvania County DSS child support services no longer based in Transylvania County?
During the Aug. 23, 2021, Transylvania County Board of Commissioners’ meeting, commissioners voted to contract out child support services to the private agency, Veritas HHS, an Asheville-based health and human services consulting firm.
The contract went into effect Monday, Nov. 1, and the former DSS child support services staff is no longer employed with the county.
During the summer, DSS employed two child support staff, one supervisor, one agent and had one vacant position.
