The end of the welfare benefit line comes in two weeks for 413 Missouri families currently receiving monthly checks. And, the welfare rights group “GRO-Grass Roots Organizing,” isn’t pleased with that. GRO’s Robin Acree claims the Department of Social Services has not not reached out to the families being cut off. Social Services Department Director Kathy Martin says the families haverefused to cooperate with Department officials. The 413 families have been receiving welfare checks for the entire five year period that welfare reform measures have been in place. Federal law says it’s time for them to be cut off.
