Department of Social Services spokeswoman Karen Garber said that over the next several months the department planned "to hire and train caseworkers who will assume responsibility" for the program.
CSEA filed a grievance against Nassau in 2012 that asserted the county did not give the union enough time to respond to a bid request to operate a small FCA counseling program for juvenile offenders.

During negotiations, the county and CSEA decided that the nonprofit should continue to run the juvenile program because it serves an "extremely at-risk population and there was a desire to avoid disturbing services in that area," Garber said.

Karen Garber, the Department of Social Services program coordinator, said the caseworkers asked neighbors, checked whether the apartment lights were on and considered Brewer's history of answering the door for CPS when determining that she and the children were not at home.
"We had no legal authority to be involved in the court case," Garber said.

"[We have] carefully reviewed the New York State Office of Children and Family Services report and find that it echoes the findings of the county's own investigation," said Karen R. Garber, program coordinator for the Nassau County Department of Social Services (NCDSS). "As a result of the county's findings, the department of social services has been proactive in improving service delivery and has done so in a transparent manner."
The department, said Garber, has established a Behavioral Health Unit to assist in identifying and coordinating assessments and services for families who are in crisis due to mental health and/or substance abuse issues; instituted a Children & Family Quality Case Review Team, which will randomly review cases to assess the quality of casework; and added a CPS "Case of the Week" that reviews selected cases with input from multiple county departments.
Additionally, she said Nassau's Department of Social Services caseworkers have been provided wireless computers to access relevant case information while making field visits; offering refresher training and new training for caseworkers, including conducting training jointly with the police department; and convening interagency discussions to improve information-sharing between departments.
According to Garber, Nassau proactively supported the New York State legislation for CPS to obtain criminal records of subjects of a report, which was signed by Governor David Paterson in September 2008, and checks all new CPS intakes through the Nassau County Swift Justice database.
"Nassau County Department of Social Services is in the process of preparing a written corrective action plan, which will be submitted to NYS Office of Children and Family Services," said Garber, adding that it will include "items that have already been implemented, such as making timely safety assessments and clearly documenting all casework interventions."

The number of cases grew from 6,624 to 7,192 between 2007 and 2008, an 8 percent increase, said Karen Garber, a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Department of Social Services.
Garber said public attention surrounding the case of Leatrice Brewer, a New Cassel resident who drowned her three children in February 2008, contributed to an increase in reports in Nassau.
