Susan Alford, the new director of the S.C. Department of Social Services, visited Lancaster County on Tuesday, March 31.
She is touring county DSS offices across the state to review what is working and what needs improvements.
In the afternoon, she met with a variety of community agencies that partner with Lancaster County DSS, to gather their feedback.
The stop in Lancaster is the second in a statewide tour. She believes that the changes that DSS has to make will be made at the local levels.
